As the propatainment media hysteria over the Lieber-Wuhan-Fauci (rhymes with Grouchy) virus continues, and as everyone throws in their two cents on what they think is going on and what "they" hope to accomplish with all of this, I've been hearing from teachers. I have a few friends who are teachers, and there are a few members of this site who are teachers. And I can assure the regular readers of my blogs, that without exception, none of them were in favor of the Common Core curriculum and agenda being promoted by Darth Hillary, Jeb What's-his-Name, and Billious Hates.

Most of their criticism of the whole miserable thing was its reliance on computer standardized tests that were "adaptive", i.e., that in addition to the normal multiple guess questions on standardized tests composed by "experts", the tests would be adapted to individual students by computer algorithms, algorithms again prepared by "experts." The problem with standardized tests, as I and so many others have so often pointed out, is that multiple guess questions do not require reasoning, nor that one shows one's reasoning. They are tailor-made to present narratives, and this particularly so in the so-called "soft" disciplines like history. Consider the following hypothetical question on a standardized test for, say, late elementary school or middle school: "Who killed President John Kennedy?" You know that the establishment edugarchy - a word we'll return to in a moment - will push the narrative of the Warren Report. Answer: "Lee Harvey Oswald." Never mind all the vast amounts of research that has been done since that event that have raised serious questions about that event.

But as my co-author Gary Lawrence and I pointed out in our book about Common Core, Rotten to the (Common) Core, the standardized tests had massive problems even in their presentations of questions and answers for the so-called hard sciences. In the book, we pointed out a controversy in the late 1950s and early 1960s between mathematician Banesh Hoffman - a friend of Albert Einstein - and the Educational Testing Service over some questions about physics where the Educational Testing Service's "correct answer" to a question was manifestly and seriously flawed. Hoffman wrote articles about the controversy at the time which ran in various national magazines and newspapers. All to no avail. The Educational Testing Service's explanations of their "reasoning" for insisting a wrong answer was correct, only dug themselves into further difficulties (and please note, they were allowed to explain their process of reasoning for insisting a wrong answer was in fact correct, while their test subjects were not allowed to do so). We call this attitude and the people behind it the "edugarchy."

And all of this before Common Core's "adaptive" tests.

So what's the goal? Get everyone addicted to "computer books" and the easy sound-bite of a google search, and call that "research", just so long as you agree with the promoted narrative (and with Google designing the search algorithms, how could it be anything but?). And along the way, reduce teachers to classroom proctors for standardized tests, break the teachers' unions, and gain total control of a curriculum in a one-size-fits-all federal monster, which, incidentally, tracks you throughout your entire "academic" career.

So as this propatainment media hysteria over the Fauci-Lieber-Wuhan virus has taken down schools, and forced teachers into "distance learning" and "online classrooms," I've been wondering whether or not that may have been one of the operational objectives of this whole plandemic. Just a few weeks ago, the pushback from parents and teachers against Common Core - not to mention its disastrous results as I've blogged about recently - were in, and Common Core was in trouble.

Not so any more, as one of our regular readers, N.S., caught this tweet from Andrew Cuomo, New York's infanticide-approving governor:

Yes, what a great idea: let's turn our edgykayshun system over to the man whose vaccines have allegedly killed people in India (which has banned him), who has invested in 3d printed "meat," who has made his fortune by designing the world's worst and most-virus ridden operating software and who wants to tell everyone how to deal with real viruses, and who was a major backer of the Common Core fiasco.

Funny how all this has worked out to his benefit, isn't it?

See you on the flip side...

      The USA’s denazification plans in Europe hit Norway the hardest, with a world record legal purse, creating a monster of brainwashing, making Norway an anomaly, and a Trojan horse in Scandinavia.

      The Glücksburgs made a deal with the USA, to secure their reign in Norway, and to counter the backlash. Because the Glücksburgs, while exiled in Britain, had been involved, in Allied bombing of civilians in Norway.

      The process of disowning Norway, as collective punishment, and excluding Norwegians from the Nordic region is necessary, because they er in league with Swampington.

      We can’t have Norwegians Nazi-hunting their neighbors at random. It will lead to bloodwrack of highest degree, and that is war coming down the pike.

    Hey doc thanks for the laugh. You may want to check out the Jupyter ecosystem. It is an electronic textbook with live code cells called Jupyter Notebook or Lab. The live code cells encourage students to try things. Jupyter Hub for classroom and NBgrader for automated grading. All around awesome stuff.

    As an instructor for 2 years teaching scripting (bash, powershell), virtualization and client server at the post secondary level I find the tools for automated testing abysmal at best. The standard is D2L which has been renamed Brightspace. I call it DimSpace or “Down 2 Luck”. The only thing it is good for is T/F, matching answers, multiple choice etc. Pathetic is the word.

    One thing I wanted was an automated testing system that I would define the problem and the students figure it out from there. In computer programming & scripting there are hundreds if not thousands of ways to get the correct result.

    NBgrader is the automated testing part and it allows complete freedom for the student to solve the problem. My classic example is to have them write a script/program that checks passwords. The password should have 8+ characters, upper/lower case letters, numbers and special characters. Their code is run again 6 different strings (1 should pass and the other 5 should fail due to something missing).

    I’m totally hooked on it and would recommend it to any teacher at any level.

    • anakephalaiosis on May 9, 2020 at 3:51 am

      Interesting. I’ve written a bash script, for Big Ben to chime in my office, with quarter chimes etc. The purpose was to change the 24 hour clock, into a 32 Ryne-Stafas clock. (“Ryne” is orbital path in Old English.)

      There are eight tides in Old English, that rise and fall, and the experiment was to study the Druidic sun clock, to get a “feel” of its world view.

      Apparently, this is the subplot in Harry Potter saga as well, as the eight horcruxes are mid tides, that the papacy is up in arms about.

      Druidry is a social contract, by sundial of 8-point compass timekeeper (Odin’s horse).

    One has noticed a great deal of superfluous lofty babble from those folks [who] call themselves experts and leaders. The majority of it, if not all of it, has been spontaneous reactivity from dysfunctional presumptions in the first place. Fear driven and fear manipulated.

    One way to consider some of what has been happening, at least in part, is that [fear] has been getting weaponized from several angles. Those not at the forefront lying low for an opportunity to strike out.

    This emotion packs quite a neurological punch onto the psyche when driven and hyped. Some know how to use this human behavior and its language (even if it’s lengthy, linear, and imprecise (the language conundrum)) as a weapon to twist anxiety into hate; suspicion into violence; and cowardice into surrender. Even to the point of dramatizing a test center location for the cameras and sound bites called news. That presumptive news agency got caught while having some of its own employed role playing to fill in gaps. They are indeed desperate to drive a narrative. One is sort of curious to await the outcome. Will it be flight, fright, or fight for yet another narrative to dis-inform. Circumstances were lacking so they added some hype from their payroll partisans to fill in the gaps of their agenda. It would not be polite to mention [who].

    Once a thief, always a thief some might say, as he’s trying to take something else being opportunistically positioned to deploy funds that get him into the doorway. Designing that software seems to have been another’s even if it’s been his tweaking ever since. Those early days were very rocky and troublesome, sort of like the wild west. No laws for copyright or intellectual copyright just bits, bytes, and a lot of Coke instead of bullets and an accommodating true coder that went along for the business sense of it. There’s no case when there isn’t a plaintiff. Partner or not. As for being property of his, not likely.

    A true example of how history has been re-written to suit. Now an attempt to re-write histories en masse biochemically and artificially. One question goes begging, “Are there really millions and millions preprogrammed?” Somehow building back and reimagining a better education system by doing things the same corrupted way doesn’t seem correct with any of A, B, C, D, or E filled in fully.

    • anakephalaiosis on May 8, 2020 at 12:25 pm

      In natural state deception is natural. Predator deceives prey. Man is no different, unless there is a social contract.

      Ten Commandments are a social contract, and the Ryne-Stafas also. In time, a concept of honor evolves as usage.

      Without a social contract, there can be no honor. Deception is fulfillment, when natural state poses as a false social contract.

      That defines “civilized” empire, where slaves are animal food, in Colosseum’s “natural state”.

    So here in Norway they say 2% of us has the antibody for coronavirus.
    Is that number valid globally?

    • Roger on May 8, 2020 at 10:49 am

      2 to 10% From what I was able to gather. Doesn’t matter though because there are multiple strains and no immunity due to it mutating so much. The more infectious yet less lethal strain has out paced the deadlier one so deaths seem to be down at least. But like aids it may or may not go permanently away and it is sexually transmissible to boot. No one knows anything for sure because the virus has been politcized.

    • anakephalaiosis on May 8, 2020 at 1:05 pm

      In arrogant little Norway, there is a grotesque and backward expression “vedtatte sannheter”. It translates to “truths agreed upon”.

      When I heard this expression explained, I thought it was a joke, until I realized, that some Norwegians literally construct their own truths.

      Then I asked, if Norwegians also navigated the coastline, by sea maps, based on “truths agreed upon”. Hypocrisy was the reply.

      I suspect, that is why autistic Norwegians are called “mountain monkeys” by the Danes.

  6. anakephalaiosis on May 8, 2020 at 6:19 am

    Christianity is the only curriculum needed in education. It is ut of Christianity, that grammar and mathematics is forthcoming.

    This is so, because God is the timekeeper, that is constructed by geometry, and linguistic distinction is necessary, to define abstract structures.

    Only Christianity allows this to happen, as man otherwise would fall into sin, and compete for ressources, that logically ought to be shared.

    In that sense, Christianity is good spirit of cooperation. Faith is fine also.

    The problem is the religious schools could be worst than the state school system. While I was in the Catholic school system I only read textbooks. When I was booted out and had to go into the state school system I was put into a program to improve my reading skills and had access to the school library. I really educated myself reading books fro the library and creating my own library buying in books at bookstores. Our master’s wet dream is a brave new world meets 1984 with Zardoz thrown in.

    His younger brother recorded the interview with an iPad while his brother conducted the interview. Took 4.5 minutes to wrap. Both seemed pleased with the results. Our handshake at the end of the interview was included in the video. I asked for a copy and the younger brother put one on my phone using technology I had no idea was there.

    I had a friend years ago who was heavy into professional wrestling. Made me watch Saturday morning matches. Made me realize much earlier how rigged so many other sports (albeit much more deniablty) are.

    Odd isn’t it? Just as we think, and our AI sensed internet fedback public opinion is noticed, that the monster is passed and our media (alternative and mainstream) that the referees cheated and all truths will be exposed (RFK jr to the rescue), suddenly some unforseen dishonest turn of events occurs and we are back to screaming and ranting about the unfairness and tragedy of it all that our hero, Jesse the Body Ventura will one more time be defeated by oh I don’t know, let’s say Vince McMahon sneaking into the ring right after Donald Trump shaves his head.

    So now, we are just going to have to tune in next Saturday morning or go to the wrestling matches this Wednesday night downtown or whatever and keep paying our money and our attention to everything except what matters in life so that we can feel that our puny little effort leans the truth just a little bit in the right direction.

    If we were in a crowded theatre and our hero’s car was about to fall off a cliff to the right everyone, all of us, even the ushers who watched the movie 23 times last weekend, everyone leans to the left. And will be back next weekend to watch again and see if we get a different outcome or some explanation as to why we got this one and how we can avoid it next time.

    Kinda like the religious literature we were raised with? Any one feel like we are suffering through multiple plagues and passovers and being primed and forced to leave our slaver’s land to suffer untold privations at the whim and will of a new leader?

        No, it is not poetry in normal sense, but manifestation of energies. Meter is just an excuse, to do so, when manipulating the subconscious.

        And still, one would prefer silence, and not speak at all. But the enemy is emboldened, by one’s silence, so one rocks the boat, for good measure.

        Energies of nature are accumulated, and released, when time is right. There is a discipline, in the word industry, when words are weaponized.

    One of the biggest legacies of the C-V’s effects on schools will be from the economic side. Most forecasters are expecting economic devastation resulting from the shut-down to be somewhere between the Great Depression and the Great Recession. This will cascade back into diminished school budgets. The ratio of students to teachers will rise. At some point, teachers will have to mostly give-up individual interactions simply due to the student/teacher ratio. That will leave the door open to automated learning, big-time. But it just happened that way; it was not planned…

    • guitardave on May 7, 2020 at 8:57 am

      Hi G,
      I see what you’re saying, and it is very plausible. Most of us here are well aware how these soulless, so-called humans think, and plan, and I think your comment is spot on when it comes to their plans.
      Now I’m not what most would call an optimistic thinker, but there is another side to your speculation. I’ve seen it many times, and have even used it to out-maneuver small time psychos.
      What “it” is, is, their lack of creativity. It in turn creates a ‘blind-spot’ that the Machiavellian mind can’t imagine. It often becomes rather large and obvious when you finally see it.
      In this case the ‘fly-in the-ointment’ is this…What about all the busy parents, now at home, that are, for maybe the first time, discovering the utter schlock being fed to their kids under the guise of education?
      In the quest for hyper-standardization, I see a crack in the mirror that could lead to a large enough percentage of ‘early-adopters’, or in this case, ‘early-refusers’ to get to that tipping point where the go-along-to-get-along fence-sitters finally join in and say, enough! ( And in this case, you also have the highly protective mother-child bond…I think we all know what happens when Mom-ma bear gets a whiff of someone messing with their cubs!)
      I also see it happening in general with this whole plan-scam-demic. My healthy Netflix-watching octogenarian parents have been saying stuff lately that used to get a big eye-roll if I mentioned it…(evil leaders, conspiracies and such) I’ve lately found myself thinking…”who are these people, and what have they done with my parents?”…but in a good way.
      I think humanity is at a crossroads… a time where the world ‘splits’. I don’t think it has to be an absolute one-or-the-other scenario… but this ‘force’, this choice, looming large, right in your face is saying, “what’s it gonna be people?…will you take responsibility for your health, your food, your kids, or do you give in to outside control?…to the anti-human, non-thinking robo-freaks that want to use you like a battery?
      Hopeium and fear won’t do it, but pushing us like they are now very well might. I know where I (and the good folks here) stand. I’ll fight it to the point that it may make me move to my next incarnation, if so, so be it…but giving in is NOT an option.
      Lets all make that ‘knights move’ that leaves Mr.Globillgates hanging from a lamp post, and creates a world where personal responsibility and mutual respect for the sovereignty of every human is the first rule.
      ( Sorry Gosh…my reply kinda turned into a rant)
      Thank you. GD.

        I noticed the same with my kids and my lefty wife thinking to myself “What rabbit hole are you going down?”

      I think your scenario is entirely possible. But I think there are more options.
      My mother listens to NPR, which had an interesting piece on the “future” of schools. The “new normal”. It was rife with panic-ridden, monumental shifts in how kids would be educated. Sadly, it was an iterative version of today’s shut-down where classes are, indeed, smaller because kids have to sit and learn while maintaining a specific distance away from each other and their teacher.
      You can extrapolate that into all the other facets of school activities with the contact tracking during the day and of course what kids do on their walks to school and their after school activities and other social events that define childhood as much as school does.

      Alternatively, more and more people (thanks to the vaccine fascism) are home schooling their kids. I can only hope some parents are realizing how much more important and fulfilling being with their kids and being more engaged in their own lives is than a crappy job, which most people have. I also know so many people really loving working from home and even busier than they are at the office.

      The drawbacks of both kids and adults being isolated from others aside I’d like to think people will grow confident in being a much bigger part of their kids’ education and most parents simply will not put up with the destruction of it any longer.

      That said, you can be sure the homeschooling culture has a gigantic target it on it. What is sometimes being done in their attempts to discredit it is disgusting but that nefariousness also makes people more resilient. Ironically, CA is known as one of the strongest homeschooling communities.

      Agreed. However this will have a whole series of unintended consequences. Parents may choose to opt out of public education altogether in increasing numbers. Parochial schools may start up with several churches networking together to defray costs. Private schools and home schooling enrollments may swell. Now that parents are forced to review the current public “cesspool-education” system in the country they will think about this problem differently. On this one I’m not blaming teachers per se–but the system itself. It is beginning to feel like shifting to an internet/corporate education model that was discussed about a decade ago on this very same site.
