These few decades of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA have been moving all our US Federal public education funding to expanding corporate education and empowering global banking 1% FREEMASON SCHOOLS-----as we know freemason schools work for those OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE-----they support DARK AGES medieval trade guilds-------not freedom, liberty, justice, pursuit of happiness, broad and strong citizenship public education for all 99% of US citizens black, white, and brown citizens.
Catholic Charities tied to far-right wing Johns Hopkins as Annenberg is tied to far-right wing Brown University-----nothing good happening in MOVING FORWARD US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES bringing US cities to colonial status.
When we see media outlets filling our news with public policy discussions written by FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING 1% think tanks----we need to understand these policies are BAD for 99% of WE THE PEOPLE and think what the goals really are ------here in Baltimore our social services is a great big network of PATRONAGE PAY-TO-PLAY looking more like REFUGEE structures keeping people poor until they are moved somewhere else.
THESE ARE NOT 99% REAL CATHOLIC OR 99% REAL JEWISH INSTITUTIONS----THEY ARE FAKE RELIGIOUS FREEMASON GROUPS.
We KNOW these groups are MOVING FORWARD the killing of US public school K-university AND we know they are working for global 1% ----please move away from freemason/Greek education/school policies. This is especially true for our 99% LATINO immigrants and new immigrant citizens ------our 300 years of US history did not have these NGOs controlling our public sector agencies----especially our public schools----SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.
Archdiocesan social services programs singled out for national award
Familes outside one of the Catholic Social Services centers in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Three Philadelphia programs were recently singled out as recipients of the Annie E. Casey award from Catholic Charities USA.

Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (CSS) was one of three national programs singled out to receive the 2011 Catholic Charities USA/Annie E. Casey Family Strengthening Award, which was presented during the Sept. 18-21 Catholic Charities USA Annual Gathering and Poverty Summit held in Fort Worth, Texas.
In its application CSS highlighted the work of three of its family service centers within the City of Philadelphia: the Northeast Family Service Center, the Southwest Family Service Center and Casa del Carmen.
At CSS, the Strengthening Families Program is a 15-week course that is both helpful and down-to earth.
Videos, books articles or games are used to learn about good parenting in a friendly and informal atmosphere that promotes adult learning through active participation.
Classes are free and voluntary and children also come with their parents. After a joint meal the adults meet with parenting facilitators and the children with teachers, and then they come back together to put into practice what was learned.
Casimiro, who took the course with his young son at the Southwest Family Center, could be a poster child for what CSS is attempting to do.
A single father, he came to CSS in 2007 after his then-infant son, Casimiro Jr., was diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome because of the alcohol and drug addiction of his now-deceased mother.
Casimiro and his son have benefitted from the family-strengthening programs offered through Catholic Social Services.
A major theme of the Strengthening Families Program curriculum is to increase the quality and quantity time between parents and children and discourage unwanted behaviors.
“Before I came to class I was putting up walls with my son and had withdrawn from him when his behavior was bad,” Casimiro said. “Through the SPP classes I learned that a parent must address the bad behavior but still not hold back from loving his child unconditionally. We hold regular family meetings now, which has improved our family life. The tools I acquired have made a big difference in the relationship with my son.”
“Casimiro is a very dedicated father who consistently and enthusiastically attended the Family Strengthening Program and encouraged a friend to attend with him,” said facilitator Fran Spross. “It has been an amazing and beautiful thing to witness this father-son journey.”
“We have embraced a family strengthening model rooted in not simply doing good things for families, but helping them to do those things for themselves,” said Amy Stoner, director of Community-Based Prevention Services within CSS. “We do more with less by pooling resources across sites and cross-training staff to utilize the unique skill sets of each. In the face of diminishing funds we effectively incorporate community organizations who are actively engaged with our clients on site as part of our delivery service.”
Among other programs offered at the center, are a Homeless Prevention Program; an Emergency Food and Shelter Program, a Prenatal Education and Support Program, a Job Training Program and Out of School Time programs.
“By connecting families to the support and opportunities they need to be economically stable, these programs are helping people build better lives, and, as a result, strengthen communities across the country,” said Father Larry Snyder, President of Catholic Charities USA.
A delegation representing Catholic Charities USA and the Annie E. Casey Foundation will visit Philadelphia Oct. 19-21 for a first-hand look at how the programs are conducted.
The Catholic Charities USA/Annie E. Casey Family Strengthening Award is funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a $2.5 billion foundation established in 1948 by James E. Casey, the founder of UPS (United Parcel Services, Inc.), along with his two brothers and sister to honor the memory of their mother. Casimiro Sr. and Casimiro Jr. are perfect examples of what their foundation is all about. Much like Annie E. Casey was a young widow who struggled to support four children; very much like many of the people assisted by CSS.
The award was also given to programs in Anchorage, Alaska and Phoenix, Ariz.; each of the three received a $25,000 prize.

'On Sunday, about 10,000 people demonstrating in southwestern Virginia heard the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Richard Trumka, president of the miners' union, criticize the Reagan and Bush Administrations for what they called a hostile attitude toward labor'.
We want to remember our US labor union history as we discussed earlier-----as Clinton era 1990s came----there seemed to conveniently be FAKE 5% LABOR UNION LEADERS installed that continually worked for global banking 1% neo-liberalism. Everyone understands Clinton and neo-liberalism has killed 99% of US labor whether union or not.
Here we see two ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT FAKE civil rights labor rights leaders back in REAGAN era heading into Clinton era. This was when MASTER PLAN for US cities was to create FAILED STATES by leaving US city economies stagnant----no rebuilding of local economies to replace department US corporations leaving for Foreign Economic Zones overseas.
We KNOW Jesse Jackson is tied to CIA/33rd degree freemason---and we can be sure Trumka is as well. So, here in Trumka in Rockefeller controlled West Virginia being a mining union leader. He was of course tapped to replace SWEENEY right at this time. West Virginia ROCKEFELLER union leader heads the US AFL-CIO.
This is the CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA ROBBER BARON period when US labor and justice once REAL LEFT social progressive working for 99% of workers and families morphed to being controlled by global banking 1% told US labor unions were to become DARK AGES TRADE GUILDS.
WHEN OUR TEACHERS' LABOR UNIONS ARE TIED TO INTERNATIONAL AFL-CIO-----THEY ARE NO LONGER WORKING FOR COMMUNITIES, FAMILIES, STUDENTS, TEACHERS-----LET'S GET RID OF THESE 5% FAKE LABOR UNION PLAYERS.
Violence in Coal Strike Is Increasing
Published: September 5, 1989
DEHUE, W.Va., Sept. 4— Shots have been fired and barricades set up as a coal strike that started in April turns increasingly violent in southern West Virginia.
In Rum Creek Hollow, striking miners have built a barrier of tires, railroad ties and even an old couch to keep coal trucks out.
About a mile up the road at the mouth of Slab Fork Hollow, pickets have erected a shield of timbers and sandbags to block what they say are bullets from automatic weapons and other guns fired by mine guards and nonunion workers.
There is evidence of violence on both sides, Superintendent Jack Buckalew of the state police said. Gunshots in the Picket Shacks
''Some of the equipment has been hit by gunfire,'' Superintendent Buckalew said, speaking of mine company property. ''It's obvious there have been gunshots into the picket shacks.''
The United Mine Workers union has been on strike against the Pittston Coal Group Inc. since April in a dispute over wages and benefits.
The strike affects 1,900 miners in Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia, including 300 here in Logan County. Pittston is seeking concessions that many miners fear would set an industrywide precedent.
There have been minor incidents of violence since the strike began, but the violence began to increase in June and July during wildcat walkouts in the East and Midwest. Strike Expanded in August
The situation became much worse when the A. T. Massey Coal Company, a subsidiary of the Fluor Corporation, reopened the Rum Creek mine in early August.
On Sunday, about 10,000 people demonstrating in southwestern Virginia heard the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Richard Trumka, president of the miners' union, criticize the Reagan and Bush Administrations for what they called a hostile attitude toward labor.
''During the past 10 years, political leaders such as President George Bush have used the American flag to pull the wool over our eyes,'' Mr. Jackson said. The Union Is Fined
While other American union leaders like Cesar Chavez of the United Farm Workers have praised the U.M.W. for its commitment to nonviolence, a Virginia judge fined the union nearly $4.5 million in July for what he called ''acts of terror'' in the coalfields.
Gunfire has erupted along Rum Creek several times, the authorities said. On Aug. 19, a union member was wounded in the arm and hospitalized for a week. Six nonunion workers were charged with attempted murder. Late last month, one of the six was charged with attempted murder a second time after driving a loader through a blockade, picking up a striker in the bucket and carrying him more than 50 feet before being stopped by a police officer. Each Blames the Other
Each side blames the other for the violence.
Richard Zigmond, president of Massey's Rum Creek Coal Sales Inc., said pickets have been firing into mine property, damaging equipment and endangering workers.
Eight union members, including Charles Gilliam, a former member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, have been charged with throwing rocks at company employees and vehicles.
The union members complained that security guards and nonunion truck drivers are heavily armed, while pickets are barred by a court order from carrying guns.
''It's a real confrontation there between the people working there and the pickets,'' said Mr. Buckalew, the police superintendent. ''One side has sandbags; the other side has bulletproof guard shacks.''
Weingarten has been a GLOBAL BANKING 1% CLINTON NEO-LIBERAL HAWK since TRUMKA has ------we KNOW she is not working for US 99% of teachers----not working for public schools-----not working for students. She is MOVING FORWARD global corporate campus schools-----
We can imagine that WEINGARTEN is attached to ANNENBERG which is attached to BROWN UNIVERSITY-----and we can imagine that TRUMKA is attached to ANNIE E CASEY is attached to JOHNS HOPKINS-----which is bad news for US 99% of WE THE PEOPLE needing strong citizenship public schools and education.
WE HAVE ALLOWED A BUNCH OF OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE GLOBAL 1% FREEMASONS WORKING FOR OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS CAPTURE OUR US LABOR UNIONS INCLUDING OUR FEDERAL, STATE, AND CITY AFSCME AND OUR PUBLIC TEACHERS' UNIONS.
We hear from our 99% of US labor union members that labor union ELECTIONS ARE RIGGED AND CORRUPT----we are sure of that. This is why we cannot FIX BALTIMORE---FIX our public schools until we FIX ELECTIONS.
These industrial and labor schools are not PRO-WORKER----they are PRO-GLOBAL CORPORATION with goals of managing labor as cheaply as possible. MD and MA both have these corporate labor colleges
'Cornell University (/kɔːrˈnɛl/ kor-NEL) is a private and statutory Ivy League research university located in Ithaca, New York'
'Weingarten holds degrees from Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations'
RANDI WEINGARTEN is president of the 1.7 million-member American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO, which represents teachers; paraprofessionals and school-related personnel; higher education faculty and staff; nurses and other healthcare professionals; local, state and federal government employees; and early childhood educators. The AFT champions fairness; democracy; economic opportunity; and high-quality public education, healthcare and public services for students, their families and communities. The AFT and its members advance these principles through community engagement, organizing, collective bargaining and political activism, and especially through members’ work.
Prior to her election as AFT president in 2008, Weingarten served for 12 years as president of the United Federation of Teachers, AFT Local 2, representing approximately 200,000 educators in the New York City public school system, as well as home child care providers and other workers in health, law and education. In 2013, the New York Observer named Weingarten one of the most influential New Yorkers of the past 25 years. Washington Life magazine included Weingarten on its 2013 Power 100 list of influential leaders.
Weingarten has launched major efforts to place real education reform high on the nation’s and her union’s agendas. She created the AFT Innovation Fund, a groundbreaking initiative to support sustainable, innovative and collaborative education reform projects developed by members and their local unions. At Weingarten’s direction, the AFT developed a model to transform teacher evaluations from a way of simply rating teachers to a tool for continuous improvement and feedback, and is using this model to align tenure and due process so that tenure serves as a guarantee of fairness, not of a job for life. Weingarten led an AFT committee that called for all prospective teachers to meet a high entry standard—as in medicine or law—so that they’re prepared from the day they enter the classroom.
Weingarten oversaw the development of the AFT’s Quality Education Agenda, which advocates for reforms grounded in evidence, equity, scalability and sustainability. She promotes what she calls “solution-driven unionism”—an approach to collective bargaining and collective action that unites the interests of union members and those they serve in the pursuit of solutions that benefit students, schools and communities.
The AFT and a broad array of parent and community partners have collaborated on events across the country to advance a community- and educator-driven agenda for public school reform. Parents and many others have joined the AFT’s efforts to end the overuse and misuse of standardized tests, and to fix—not close—struggling schools, something Weingarten has advocated since her involvement in the creation of New York City’s Chancellor’s District, which dramatically improved achievement in what had been some of the city’s lowest-performing schools.
Weingarten spearheaded the development by the AFT and British partner TES Connect of Share My Lesson, the United States’ largest free collection of educational resources created by teachers, for teachers, with an emphasis on resources aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
Weingarten and the AFT were asked to lead a partnership to transform McDowell County, W.Va., one of the poorest counties in the United States. The AFT has assembled close to 100 partners not only to improve the quality of education provided to children in the county, but to focus on jobs, transportation, recreation, housing, healthcare and social services. The AFT also has developed a partnership with First Book to provide free and reduced-price books to children, with a goal of distributing 5 million books in one year.
Under Weingarten’s leadership, the AFT continues to grow and expand its voice as a union of professionals. In 2013, the National Federation of Nurses, representing 34,000 nurses, voted to affiliate, making the AFT the second-largest union of nurses in the country. The AFT has also expanded its higher education and public employee membership as well as building strength in the South and Southwest.
In 2012-13, Weingarten served on an education reform commission convened by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, which made a series of recommendations to improve teaching and learning. She was appointed to the Equity and Excellence Commission, a federal advisory committee chartered by Congress to examine and make recommendations concerning the disparities in educational opportunities that give rise to the achievement gap.
For 10 years, while president of the UFT, Weingarten chaired New York City’s Municipal Labor Committee, an umbrella organization for the city’s 100-plus public sector unions, including those representing higher education and other public service employees. As chair of the MLC, she coordinated labor negotiations and bargaining for benefits on behalf of the MLC unions’ 365,000 members.
From 1986 to 1998, Weingarten served as counsel to UFT president Sandra Feldman, taking a lead role in contract negotiations and enforcement, and in lawsuits in which the union fought for adequate school funding and building conditions. A teacher of history at Clara Barton High School in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood from 1991 to 1997, Weingarten helped her students win several state and national awards debating constitutional issues.
Elected as the local union’s assistant secretary in 1995 and as treasurer two years later, she became UFT president after Feldman became president of the AFT. Weingarten was elected to her first full term as UFT president in 1998 and was re-elected three times.
Weingarten’s column “What Matters Most” appears in the New York Times’ Sunday Review the third Sunday of each month. You can follow her on Twitter at @rweingarten (link is external)or on Facebook (link is external).
Weingarten holds degrees from Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations and the Cardozo School of Law. She worked as a lawyer for the Wall Street firm of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan from 1983 to 1986. She is an active member of the Democratic National Committee and numerous professional, civic and philanthropic organizations. Born in 1957 and raised in Rockland County, N.Y., Weingarten now resides on Long Island and in Washington, D.C.
Obama's DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION was an extension of REAGAN/CLINTON neo-liberalism-----our US labor union leaders made FAKE 5% global banking 1% players in 1990 was partnered of course by more of the same in Federal Department of Education. COMMONER CORE and RACE TO TOP written by these far-right wing global banking think tanks came to light in BUSH-ERA-----because Bush is far-right wing neo-conservative. TRUMP is same as CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA so what is national media trying to hide by pretending TRUMP intends to change OBAMA/CLINTON NEO-LIBERAL education reform?
DeVos was that ROBBER BARON FRAUD 'winner'----she was the PATRONAGE small business charter allowed to use these small charters to fleece our Federal public K-12 and enfolded them into she and her husband's global corporations. We have noted that she is BLACKWATER global private mercenary corporation no doubt staging for those global corporate campus schools right now.
As has occurred these few decades of ROBBER BARON CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA -----Obama and Clinton neo-liberals installed a few pretend left social progressive policies inside RACE TO TOP having no intention of them remaining. Trump has to be made to look like he is removing what right wing conservatives do not like----school choice, common core, education testing-----
GOING NOWHERE. WHAT TRUMP IS DOING IS REDESIGNING A US EDUCATION POLICY TO TRANS PACIFIC TRADE PACT WHICH IS ONE WORLD ONE COMMONER CORE NEO-LIBERAL CORPORATE EDUCATION.
So, it's DeVos' job to kill all those temporary 'small business' charters to hand all to global education corporations. TRUMP and DeVos simply MOVING FORWARD RACE TO TOP by killing all those pretend small business charters-------making way to moving WORKPLACE CHARTERS tied to global corporate campuses.
Choosing the Right Trump Secretary of Education
By Frederick M. Hess
November 21, 2016 9:00 AM
A ten-item litmus test to help find the best conservative pick
The Trump cabinet is slowly starting to take shape. Although this Beltway ritual is of much more interest to Washington insiders than to Americans at large, the stakes are high. As the old saw has it, “personnel is policy.” Given the president-elect’s disinterest in policy particulars, this especially applies to Trump.
The focus has been on key positions such as State, Treasury, and Defense, but it was from their perch in the once-sleepy Department of Education that Obama-administration officials handed down some of their most troubling decisions. It was here that Obama’s minions, wildly overreaching, did their best to shove the Common Core down the nation’s throat, told schools that they could no longer allow students to use locker rooms based on biology, pressed colleges to adopt lawless kangaroo courts in response to a nonexistent campus “rape epidemic,” fought to let federal bureaucrats dictate local school spending policies, and championed race-based quotas for school discipline.
The next administration will have the opportunity to either set things right or make permanent Obama’s unfortunate legacy. It matters immensely who leads Trump’s Department of Education. It’s not enough that the person support school choice or be a “reformer.” At least as important is that he or she stands ready to roll back Obama-era overreach, restore educational federalism, roll back regulatory creep, and fight the politically correct fever dreams of education’s liberal elite. Unfortunately, among the names floated for Secretary of Education, several have seemed better-suited to a third Obama term than to the task at hand.
Let’s hope that Trump gets this right. He has a talented team working on the education transition, and that can only help. But Trump is no conservative, so it’s foolish to rely on him choosing as if he were one. If Trump makes the wrong call, the stakes are too high for Republican senators to turn a blind eye. GOP senators need to ask the right questions and stand ready to reject a nominee who fails to fit the bill. What should they be looking for?
They should apply a straightforward, ten-item litmus test. Trump’s nominee must have:
- A consistent record of opposing federal efforts to promote the Common Core or tell states how they ought to evaluate teachers.
- A clear grasp of how egregiously the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights has overstepped its statutory authority, and an ability to forcefully articulate what the new administration needs to do about it.
- An iron-clad commitment to abide by the actual legislative language of the Every Student Succeeds Act, and to stop federal bureaucrats who want to venture beyond the law in order to micromanage states or school systems.
- A demonstrated willingness to call out the political bias endemic to higher education. This means that the nominee will have publicly denounced efforts to stymie speech, disinvite conservative speakers, and casually brand conservatives as racists and xenophobes.
- A willingness to enthusiastically champion all forms of school choice, and for all families. This means embracing not only charter schools, but also virtual schools, school vouchers, tuition tax credits, and education savings accounts. The nominee should see these innovations not as boutique programs for low-income families but as alternatives that benefit our education system overall.
- A conviction that for-profit enterprise is a natural and healthy part of America’s diverse educational ecosystem. This means believing that for-profit colleges and charter schools, for instance, should be judged on their merits and should be free to compete on a level playing field. This would mark a sharp reversal from the Obama-era crusade to vilify for-profit education.
- A record of calling out the testing mania that was birthed by Bush’s No Child Left Behind and Obama’s Race to the Top. This doesn’t mean that the nominee need to be “anti-testing,” just that he or she will have shown an ability to challenge faddish convention when it has gone too far.
- A clear and uncompromising record of opposing big federal education programs and record of opposing calls for increased federal education spending.
- An unapologetic insistence that college affordability is not about giving students a free ride, but about entering a partnership with taxpayers — and that viable policy solutions must serve both students and taxpayers.
- A clear recognition on issues such as early childhood education and data privacy that we need to skeptically scrutinize the well-meaning plans of Beltway do-gooders.
These global banking 1% think tanks writing public policy on our US right wing and left wing -------are NEITHER. All 99% of US citizens do not want this. Our 99% global labor pool and new immigrant citizens only used to these kinds of repressive education policies need to understand from where US freedom, liberty, justice, pursuit of happiness---citizenship and business ownership stems-----it is from our 300 years of strong, broad public education holding power accountable.

Here is RACE TO THE TOP-----it has always been a WORLD BANK/UNITED NATIONS policy----it was initiated in force by BUSH ERA administration after REAGAN/CLINTON starved, privatized, and corrupted our US public schools into dysfunction.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OTHER THAN PAYING TAXES TO SUPPORT PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS AND ABIDING BY SOVEREIGN STATE LAWS..
TRUMP is MOVING FORWARD all these ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE for only the global 1% policies----getting rid of PATRONAGE small business charters to install global corporate education WORKPLACE SCHOOLS. Below is for whom all our 5% FAKE ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT pols and players work.
Race to the top : attracting and enabling global sustainable business - business survey report (English)
The World Bank Group's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Practice commissioned the Political and Economic Link Consulting (PELC) and Ethical Corporation, to conduct a study to explore two related issues: a) how corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues influence the investment, and purchase decisions of multinational enterprises (MNEs) around the world; and, b) how governments in the developing world can create environments that companies will find attractive from a CSR perspective. Between December 2002 and March 2003, in-depth interviews were conducted within multinational enterprises in the extractive, agribusiness, and manufacturing sectors. The study was designed to capture the views of the largest purchasers and investors in the target sectors, as well as CSR leaders in each sector. In order to frame the role of CSR in trade and investment, the survey first explored the role of CSR in each MNE's general policy, and management structures. Extractive-sector respondents reported significantly higher percentages of board-approved policies for land rights and environmental issues, than did respondents in manufacturing or agribusiness, while findings suggest U.S., Canadian, and Australian respondents have developed board-approved policies on fewer issues, than respondents in other developed countries. Developing country respondents, in direct response to the HIV/Aids crisis, were more likely to have community health policies, than respondents in developed countries. Among the greatest CSR challenges for MNEs, are their relationships with local partners. Nearly all firms participating in the survey, have made a public commitment to require some level of CSR performance from their local partners. To attract sustainable trade and investment, governments should consider: developing strong laws on corporate social responsibility, that are strongly enforced; addressing MNEs CSR concerns early in the new venture assessment cycle; using local "CSR-ready" companies to promote the country as an investment location; channeling CSR information into media that matter to MNEs; improving their understanding of the corporate CSR codes of target MNEs, and engaging more effectively in international CSR forums. And, to enable sustainable trade and investment, governments should consider : approaching large MNEs for partnerships, using their CSR systems; cultivating local CSR resources for smaller, and developing-country MNEs; brokering multi-corporate partnerships where single-company action is difficult, or inappropriate; and, building a base of "CSR-ready" local companies
Here is our MD far-right wing global banking 1% Clinton neo-liberal RASKINS installing policies for WORLD BANK calling for SOCIAL BENEFIT CORPORATIONS. He is married to the US FED but allowed to run as a DEMOCRAT so he has to PRETEND these policies help the poor----the new immigrants-----the suffering dogs and cats----
Notice how these WORLD BANK RACE TO THE TOP corporate sustainability laws with goals of enriching the global 1% are tied to our PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP-------
Raskins is a rascal-------at the same time THEN MARYLAND GOVERNOR O'MALLEY created MARYLAND NON-PROFITS tying them to global corporate 'donation' allowing them to pretend to be writing SOCIAL BENEFIT policy.
This is especially true around GLOBAL CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP with our US K-university public schools.
O'Malley is a TAMMANY HALL PLANTATION rascal.
These are the policies put into place during OBAMA ERA that deregulates and dismantles all our public education US history and privatizes all structures and sends all Federal, state, and local education funding to GLOBAL CORPORATIONS AND THEIR SOCIAL BENEFIT SCHOOLS.
Both O'Malley and Raskin are of course OLD WORLD CATHOLIC AND JEWISH FREEMASONS working for those old world global kings and queens...killing 99% of real Catholic and Jewish citizens.
The Rise of Benefit Corporations : Jamie Raskin
Posted on June 13, 2011 |
Corporate America With a Social Conscience!
Jamie Raskin is a state senator in Maryland representing Silver Spring and Takoma Park and a constitutional law professor at American University. He introduced SB 690, which became the first Benefit Corporation law in America last year.
“When America began, the states chartered corporations for public purposes, like building bridges. They could earn profits, but their legitimacy flowed from their delegated mission.
Today, corporations are chartered without any public purposes at all. They are legally bound to pursue a single private purpose: profit maximization. Thus, far from advancing the common good, many for-profit corporations have come to defy the law, corrupt the officials charged with enforcing it and inflict harm on the public with impunity. The consequences are visible in the wreckage left by BP, Massey Energy, Enron, AIG, Lehman Brothers, Blackwater and Exxon Mobil, to name a few recent wrongdoers. Profits rule; anything goes.
We need a new business model inspired by the old one. Corporations should again come to bolster democratic purposes, not thwart them. To be sure, there will be no return to the legislative short leash, especially now that the Supreme Court has invited corporations to spend treasury funds electing pliant and obsequious lawmakers. But socially minded businesses should at least have the right to operate outside the straitjacket legal requirements of Delaware Code profit maximization.”
Here we see the same RACE TO TOP WORLD BANK workplace corporate campus charter policies being installed in Mexico----at the same time we see Mexican elections as rigged as our elections in US MOVING FORWARD a MARXIST President. That is of course far-right, authoritarian, militaristic, extreme wealth extreme poverty LIBERTARIAN MARXISM----global corporate campus SOCIALISM is United Nations SUSTAINABILITY and that includes RACE TO TOP COMMONER CORE education policies.
We shout to our 99% of LATINO US citizens and global labor pool-----please take time to educate on what REAL US public education policy has been before this attack by global banking 1%----public schools were always strong on PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP----being killed now.
Our LATINOS really need to shake all that freemasonry----it will keep our 99% global citizens down.
Mexican Teachers Continue Fight against Government's 'Education Reforms'
February 16, 2018 / Jane Slaughter

Five years after the Mexican government passed a controversial “education reform” law with no public discussion, teachers in the southern state of Oaxaca are still resisting its implementation.
The changes imposed by the conservative government bear a strong resemblance to the goals of education “reformers” in the U.S.—closing schools, creeping privatization, punitive evaluations of teachers in order to fire them, attacks on union rights. In Mexico, however, the campaign has been accompanied by arrests of dissident union officials and even, in one case, a mass police shooting that left at least eight people dead.
And also as in the U.S., Mexican teachers have put forward their own positive plan for changing the schools and their students' conditions of life—as an alternative to blaming teachers.
On Monday teachers from the dissident movement La CNTE marched in Mexico City and in various states to protest the convention of their parent union, El SNTE, which has backed the government's education reforms. In the town of Juchitán in Oaxaca, teachers also demanded that their schools be rebuilt after last September's earthquake.
NO TO THE TEST
La CNTE (the National Coordinating Committee of Education Workers, in English) is strongest in Oaxaca's Section XXII and has had some success in noncompliance with the government's plan. Oaxacan teachers have largely refused to take the national examination demanded by the government in order to weed teachers out. They say that the examination, which is purely a test of knowledge, not an evaluation of teachers' actual performance in the classroom, ignores local conditions in the schools.
Wilbert Santiago Valdivieso, an executive board member of Section XXII, said the Secretary of Education offered the carrot of housing credits to induce teachers to take the test, as well as the stick of threats of firing. He asked what was the use of a national standardized test when conditions varied so widely from state to state and between city and country.
Oaxaca's teachers are in favor of evaluation, he said—one that would include a broad look at all the conditions students face. “They point at teachers as the source of the problems in the schools, but the state doesn't provide the resources we need,” Santiago said. Oaxaca is one of Mexico's poorest states.
Since the “reform” was passed by the Congress in December 2012, in a convention center surrounded by police to keep protesting teachers away, the national government has cut the education budget, closed schools, and refused to replace retiring teachers. Some Oaxaca teachers face up to 60 students in a classroom. The state has closed smaller rural schools and combined them with others, leaving students to walk to school up to two hours, or for parents to pay for transportation.
PROFITING OFF EDUCATION
At the same time, the government is creating opportunities for private business to profit from the schools. Under the “Escuelas al CIEN” program, businesses are encouraged to provide money for infrastructure repairs--in exchange for the deed to the school's assets. Critics such as Santiago question whether this is even legal under the Mexican constitution, which requires education to be compulsory, secular, and free.
In June 2016 police opened fire on a demonstration of teachers and supporters in the small town of Nochixtlan, northwest of Oaxaca City. At least eight were killed, and more than 100 wounded, including police. No one has been charged with any crime in the killings; the government's human rights commission recommended only an apology.
Meanwhile, Section XXII is promoting its own Plan for the Transformation of Education in Oaxaca. Besides more training for teachers, the plan calls for involving parents to revive traditional toys, teach about medicinal plants, create school gardens, teach math and logic, and create community libraries. The Plan would create jobs for parents in repairing and maintaining schools.
