Here we see a political media outlet looking much as global banking 1% RADICAL WOMEN FEMINISTS did in early 1990s as Clinton was taking our REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
This media outlet targets our new to US Asian immigrant children when myth-making propaganda over RADICAL FEMINISM and the far-right wing global banking NEO-LIBERALS and morphing into far-right wing authoritarian MARXIST global banking women candidates.
IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE TO ELECT A WOMAN CANDIDATE WHO IS WORKING FOR A GLOBAL 1% OF OLD WORLD KINGS THINKING OF WOMEN JUST AS A TRUMP/PENCE/KAVANAUGH.
Global banking 5% women working for OLD WORLD KINGS will kill our 99% of US WOMEN'S rights and Age of Enlightenment gains as citizens faster than any right wing REPUBLICAN.
# RESIST is far-right wing global banking 1% UNITED NATIONS/WORLD BANK------those global 1% and 2% of women have less power than our US 99% of women under US Constitution, Bill of Rights, power as US citizens.
What if #CrazyRichAsians were neither rich nor crazy but young and WOKE? Welcome to #RadicalCramSchool. #AsianAugust

Proud of Em and El's involvement in a web series that allows young children of color to examine their identities and role in society. This episode examines how race impacts the gender wage gap.
Get ready for Sesame Street meets the Resistance!
For decades we have listened to our 99% of Asian citizens shouting LOUDLY against global neo-liberal corporate education especially what are called CRAM SCHOOLS. CRAM SCHOOLS are the result of taking a US public school system---making it hyper-competitive with very few openings in what are necessary pathways to getting into the LEAST WORST of career pathways in Asia. The term WOKE used by our Baltimore City Mayor PUGH being a raging global 1% ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE player working for global 1% of WHITE MEN----means nothing but bad news to 99% of US and immigrant women.
Our global labor pool 99% of Asian citizens wanting to escape Asian global neo-liberal corporate schools by coming to US and our strong public K-12 are falling right back into the hands of CRAM SCHOOLS---here in NY.
Centers See New Faces Seeking Test Prep

Elma Moy, a teacher from southern China, opened her learning center in a storefront with low ceilings on Henry Street in 1982, catering to Chinatown’s growing student body. For years, her Web site was mostly in Cantonese, advertisements were reserved for Chinese-language daily newspapers, and staff members at the front desk greeted parents signing up for classes with “Ching choh la.” (“Have a seat.”)
Today, Ms. Moy, 68, spends a lot of her time in her second location, in TriBeCa, with well-lighted hallways, quaint French doors and an oversize poster with the school’s English name — Florentine — prominently displayed by the elevator. The centers now feature a mostly English Web site, glossy English-language pamphlets, and ads in citywide parenting magazines.
Ms. Moy’s 30-year-old daughter, Olympia Moy, a Princeton graduate who has encouraged her mother to expand, said they still catered to the children of Chinatown vegetable sellers who pay in $10 bills. But in recent years, they have also worked hard to draw in the white lawyers, bankers and artists who populate Lower Manhattan. The center’s clientele is now 70 percent Chinese, down from 97 percent when it opened in 2011, Olympia Moy said.
“We are looking for kids from all different backgrounds,” she said.
It’s no surprise to the average New York parent that so-called cram schools, once the cultural domain of Chinese-, Korean- and Russian-American students, have gained traction with non-Asian parents hoping to grab slots in competitive gifted programs and coveted middle and high schools by improving their children’s test scores.
But whereas five years ago owners of cram schools were surprised to encounter non-Asian students in their waiting rooms, now they are muscling one another for their business, handing out book bags with the names of their schools scrawled across the front, attending summer camp fairs in synagogues and school cafeterias, hiring receptionists who speak English, and aggressively pitting themselves against the Japanese cram school behemoth, Kumon, which dominates the local market.
Some are even changing their names. Horizon, a well-reputed cram school in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, known among Chinese-American families for funneling students into Stuyvesant High School and NEST+m, was recently rechristened Gifted Kids New York City. “It’s a little more appealing to Caucasian parents,” said the owner, Andrew Chan, who tells prospective parents from Park Slope and Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that he is offering “Chinese rigor” with Western-style teaching methods.
E.nopi, a 37-year-old tutoring franchise developed by a South Korean entrepreneur, recently switched its American name to Eye-Level, to call up an image popular among American parents: child-centric instruction. In its recently opened center in Park Slope, Brooklyn, where four one-hour sessions cost $200, about two-thirds of the 100 or so students are black, Hispanic or white, according to the school. “We’re a complete mixed crowd now,” said Franco Verdino, the owner of the Park Slope franchise.
Even Russian-American schools — originally designed to help parents from the mother country impart on their children knowledge of the Slavic language and its literature — are seeking a wider audience. SchoolPlus, which opened in North Brunswick, N.J., in 1995 to serve area Russians, now has 15 locations, including one on the Upper West Side and one in Princeton, N.J. Some offer classes that include advanced science and SAT preparation.
The test-preparation industry is expected to generate $840.4 million in revenues in 2013, according to a recently released report by the market research firm IBISWorld. That figure is expected to climb to $876.9 million by 2018. Spurring the trend, experts say, are the very obsessions that drive New York parents to distraction: the increasing competitiveness of the college entrance process, the introduction of more rigorous national curriculum standards, and a lack of faith in local public schools.
Margaret M. Chin, an associate professor of sociology at Hunter College who studies Asian-American immigrants, said local demographics were also playing a role in the diversification efforts, particularly among Manhattan and Brooklyn Chinese-American cram centers. From 2000 to 2010, U.S. census figures indicate, the white population in Manhattan’s Chinatown grew by 42 percent, while neighborhoods north of Sunset Park, commonly referred to as Brooklyn’s Chinatown, were also more white.
“To grow, they have to open their markets,” Dr. Chin said.
They are also trying to distinguish themselves from the Japanese Kumon, which has sprouted 44 New York City storefronts, 15 in the last two years.
Mr. Verdino of Eye-Level speaks reverentially of his company’s Korean founder, Youngjoong Kang, who is often referred to in company material as “the pioneer of the workbook market.” Kumon, meanwhile, promotes its own founder, a math teacher in Osaka named Toru Kumon, and is known for using worksheets to help students master math and reading skills.
But in the fall, Mr. Verdino sent an e-mail to prospective parents in which he claimed that Eye-Level’s Korean method, which pairs one teacher up with only a few students, is more effective than Kumon’s Japanese learning strategy, where the student-to-teacher ratio is much higher. Further, he wrote, Kumon requires too much rote memorization, and not enough critical thinking.
Kumon executives reject such criticism, and say they are not worried that smaller shops will eat away at their New York market share.
Still, the company recently updated its Web site and its workbook materials, and this spring it is starting a promotional campaign titled “Learning for the Long Run.” Joseph Nativo, the chief financial officer for Kumon North America, said the average student in the United States spent 18 months with Kumon. The company is trying to persuade families to adopt a more Asian outlook, he said, viewing Kumon as a long-term commitment, as opposed to short-term preparation for a particular test. “Westerners want to see quick fixes,” he said. “To get good at something, you have to practice at it.”
At Florentine, where an 18-week package of Saturday elementary or middle school classes goes for $1,255, the attempts to diversify were evident on a recent Saturday morning.
In one room, a group of mostly Asian teenagers in hoodies and Ugg boots pored over thick test-prep books as they jotted down their answers to practice SAT math questions. Meanwhile, in a carpeted room in the front, flanked by large windows, Natalie Schonfeld and Camila Grunberg, two 9-year-olds who are white, nibbled on green-tea cupcakes during a break in their hour-and-a-half writing class. Water bottles, pencil cases and highlighters cluttered their desks. Not one of the five students in their class was Chinese.
Camila considers the morning class like camp. “I love it,” she said.
But Atticus Khalif, a third grader at nearby Public School 130, was less enthusiastic. He took his shoes off, fiddled with his pencil and occasionally made funny noises. When asked how long he had been coming, he barked, “This is my terrible 10th time.”
Make no mistake----today's MOVING FORWARD RACE TO TOP COMMONER CORE has the same goals as this Chinese CRAM SCHOOL where other Asian nations like South Korea may have corporate after-school programs keeping children busy until they can come home to do homework------these Chinese CRAM SCHOOLS are more of what US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE will look like because CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA global banking pols are very keen on MAOIST GREAT LEAP FORWARD being our US MOVING FORWARD.
We showed a social media outlet operated by what we call Clinton/Obama global 5% neo-liberal nasty ladies------global corporate shills LIVING FOR TODAY WE DON'T CARE players come in MEN and WOMEN. That Asian website tied to #RESIST pretending CRAM SCHOOLS ARE COOL -----making our young people confused about what public policies are REALLY LEFT populist.
US baby-boomers have had to shout against the FAR-RIGHT WING pretending to be LEFT when the policies killed our 99% whether men or women-----let's not allow another generation be taken by FAKE ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT -----far-right wing being made to sound LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE.

China’s Cram School from Hell
It's 17 hours a day and goofing off can get you arrested.
By Rachel Lu
| October 11, 2013, 5:29 PM
Students taking China’s hypercompetitive college entrance exam, according to a popular saying, resemble an army of 10,000 rushing across a narrow log. So what happens to those who fall off?
Each year, more than 9 million Chinese students endure the gaokao, as the exam is known. A grueling two or three days’ experience — it varies by region — the test covers Chinese, mathematics, a foreign language, chemistry, physics, geography, and history, among other subjects. The test results, which range from the 200s to the 600s (scores of over 700 sometimes make headlines), comprise almost the entirety of a student’s college application portfolio. While some of the multiple-choice questions would be familiar to U.S. teenagers sweating over Advanced Placement exams, gaokao essay prompts are sometimes so bizarre that even Chinese state media challenged its mostly adult readers to answer some of the more notorious essay prompts, such as this one: "It flies upward, and a voice asks if it is tired. It says, ‘No.’"
Because Chinese parents often expect their children to become family breadwinners, the pressure to perform is intense. Faced with the gaokao’s high stakes and frustrating unpredictability, tens of thousands of test takers choose to sit through the ordeal again, when their scores fall short of their — or their parents’ — expectations. Having already graduated from high school, some of these re-takers hunker down at home for a year to study. Others attend cram schools like Maotanchang High School, which lies tucked away in a small town in the mountains of central China’s Anhui province and specializes in the dark art of military-style test prep. With an annual enrollment of more than 10,000 students, the school, known as Maozhong, has earned the dubious honor of being called "China’s Largest Gaokao Factory" in Chinese state media.
A Sept. 18 article in China Youth Daily, a Beijing-based newspaper, offered an inside look at the topsy-turvy economic and social life of this exam-obsessed town. The piece, which incited a debate on the benefits and drawbacks of the gaokao system, immediately became popular on Chinese social media: One thread discussing the article on Sina Weibo, a Twitter-like platform, has gathered more than 20,000 retweets and more than 5,800 comments.
The China Youth Daily article claims that Maotanchang, a speck of a town with only 5,000 registered residents, becomes home to more than 50,000 people when school is in session; classes are so crowded that teachers must use loudspeakers to address the hordes of students. The article describes schedules that run from 6:10 a.m. to 10:50 p.m., with students’ waking hours consumed by endless lectures and repetitive practice exams that abate only for two 30-minute meal breaks and one hour of downtime. (Some teachers have suggested a scheduled bathroom time for "easier management.") According to the article, one year in Maozhong’s cram program can reportedly cost up to $8,000, roughly three times the average annual disposable income in Anhui.
The article depicts a local economy so tightly bound to the cram school that townspeople have refrained from opening up the karaoke parlors and Internet cafes otherwise ubiquitous in China. Instead, enterprising locals rent out their rooms or dwellings for about $1,300 to $3,300 annually — exorbitant for a Chinese town of that size — to parents who accompany their children for the academic year.
After the report became a trending topic, people claiming to be alumni of the school took to the web to share personal accounts of this "gaokao holy land." @FORTHECITY tweeted on Sina Weibo, "I remember a classmate of ours sneaking online [instead of studying]; he was sent back to his hometown in a police car with sirens blazing." (His comment couldn’t be confirmed, though investigations by Chinese media tell similar stories of local governments putting their towns’ resources — including the police force — behind Maozhong’s brand of paramilitary cramming.)
One user wrote, "You only see the high passage rate, but you don’t see how much we have given up to go to university. You scratch the surface, but you don’t see how much scolding and physical punishment there is from teachers or how many students commit suicide under pressure." Another user, however, had warmer memories: "Before going there, many thought they’d go crazy. But after leaving, many start to miss the place."
The gaokao is not just difficult and sometimes arbitrary, but also administered in a way that deliberately stacks the odds against students from disadvantaged backgrounds. The score cutoff for admission to elite universities is lower for test-takers from rich cities like Beijing and Shanghai, where those same elite universities are located. Favorable quotas aid these students, who already have a leg up.
Millions of Chinese citizens have lived and worked for decades in large cities, yet remain unable to obtain the elusive hukou, or household registration, that would allow their children to take full advantage of the superior education afforded urban locals. Mere discussions of plans to open up the system to the "provincials" were met with fierce resistance from Beijing and Shanghai locals, many of whom see such privileges as their children’s birthright.
Nonetheless, in a society with so many deeply entrenched disparities, the gaokao still provides students with an opportunity for upward mobility. Weibo user @CCDCG, who claims to be a Ph.D. student from a rural area, wrote, "The gaokao is the fairest competitive exam, relatively speaking. With an 80 percent passage rate, Maozhong is really quite impressive. Getting a higher education is the only way up for many, especially kids from rural areas. Nowadays, education resources are highly concentrated [in cities], and I hope more underdogs can succeed in the system." Another user agreed: "These ‘gaokao factories’ are likely to emerge in poor areas. People from these places want to change their fate, but they have no other path."
Getting into university is only the first rung on China’s slippery social-mobility ladder. As China’s GDP growth slows from an annual rate of over 9 percent over the last decade to about 7.5 percent a year, recent college graduates, especially those without the right connections or parental support, find themselves in a brutal job market. In China’s hypercompetitive society, even a sterling gaokao performance — hard as that is to achieve — no longer seems to be enough. As @eltonzhg wrote, "These poor ‘raw materials’ undergo hellish molding and rigorous selection, [but] they don’t even know that goods like them are overstocked on the market."
While MOVING FORWARD RACE TO TOP COMMONER CORE installs corporate charters in all our US cities deemed FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES-----we already discuss how the tiering of vocational pathways have started-------our low-income families making up increasingly high percentages of Americans are watching as their children are tracked into dead-end corporate charters geared to simply move children into child labor apprenticeships as early an age as possible------CRAM SCHOOLS are global education corporations aimed at any US or new immigrant family managing to still have any wealth ----what we call upper-middle and merely rich families. Rather than simply assuming each community will have a strong public school able to provide all educational opportunity a child needs-----now children of wealthy families have to compete and that starts with pre-K corporate schools with lots of costly after-school programs like CRAM SCHOOLS.
Now, our US rich sending their children to private schools as in NYC have always faced this race to GETTING INTO THE RIGHT SCHOOLS----those children have always suffered for it too. Now this hyper-competitive, costly tracking of children will be the only educational structure in town BUT NOT IF WE STOP MOVING FORWARD RACE TO TOP COMMONER CORE killing our US public school systems.
'In China’s hypercompetitive society, even a sterling gaokao performance — hard as that is to achieve — no longer seems to be enough'.
Hillary nasty ladies being far-right wing and global banking 1% DON'T CARE what happens to our children whether American or immigrant ----having a global banking WOMAN called 'progressive' WIN Democratic elections will bring these educational structures to our US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES.
'Teachers observe that the stress is getting to parents and children alike'
this is what AMERICAN TEACHER FEDERATION (AFT) union WEINGARTEN as well as OUR REVOLUTION Bernie Sanders is supporting in education policy.

China’s High-Pressure Network of Cram-Schools for Tots
Chinese kindergartens are required to go easy. That means many youngsters study overtime.

BEIJING, CHINA: TO GO WITH STORY "CHINA-MUSIC-PIANO-EDUCATION"
A young girl gets ready to play the piano at the Aiyue Piano Kindergarten in Daxing on the outskirts of Beijing, 16 March 2005. Parents who put their children into the school are keen to see quick returns for their investment, and want children to learn as much and as quickly as possible.

SHANGHAI — When Doudou Wong from Shanghai was four, she began attending additional math, Chinese, and English classes outside of her weekday kindergarten. Her mother, Ting Wong, originally from Guangdong province, remembers it was initially simple to convince her young daughter to attend extra lessons. The schoolwork was easy, the weather outside was terrible, and she made new friends. But five months later, Doudou’s training school began preparing pupils in earnest for the primary school entrance test, and everything changed.
“They kept telling her to answer the questions right, and to try and be top of the class,” Wong said in an interview with Foreign Policy. That’s when her daughter’s attitude changed. “She began saying, ‘Mum, it’s not fun. Please, can I not go?’” said Wong. “But I told her, ‘You have to go because everyone else is studying and you need to keep up.’”
From the moment Chinese students begin primary school at age six until the final year of secondary school around age 18, when they take the gaokao, China’s nationwide college entrance exam, they are in fierce competition with one another. Chinese parents commonly believe that there’s no surer path to a good job than a university education. So the battle to land a child a place in a well-regarded primary school that will put him or her in pole position for a prestigious junior school — which in turn enhances the child’s chance to enter a high-ranking senior school — begins as soon as a son or daughter is eligible to sign up for kindergarten.
But China’s enlightened kindergarten teaching guidelines, intended to make early education fun and low-pressure, actually push tots into after-school cram classes.
China’s enlightened kindergarten teaching guidelines, intended to make early education fun and low-pressure, actually push tots into after-school cram classes.
Preschool teachers are officially discouraged from teaching children the academic knowledge they need to hit the ground running at the start of elementary school. First drafted in 2001 and updated in 2012, China’s kindergarten guidelines are very clear that “intensive skill training is inappropriate for young children.” Instead, they suggest, toddlers should be encouraged to become well rounded, articulate, and intellectually curious. The guidelines abjure a one-size-fits-all approach that suppresses creativity for the sake of perfect results, narrowly defined. The policy update in 2012 came as part of the government’s wider focus on improving early years education and a commitment to provide 70 percent of children access to three years of early education by 2020.
Despite their laudable aims, the guidelines inadvertently pressure parents to push young children to work longer hours. Chinese parents begin sending their children to training schools and tutors outside of kindergarten, from the age of three. As kindergartens do not encourage rote learning, parents accept they must organize the necessary additional instruction themselves.
Yijun Qiu, 24, who teaches five and six-year-olds at Jiguan Jianguo kindergarten in Shanghai, says parents regularly make “suggestions” about what he could be teaching instead. “I have to tell them we focus on skills for living, we’re not focused on knowledge. Kids need to learn how to live, learn, and listen,” Qiu told FP. He added that teachers might add “a little math,” even if “it’s not allowed.”
A local teacher at a well-regarded primary school in Shanghai, who asked to remain anonymous because her school forbids staff to talk to media, added that parents are frequently upset by the prohibition. “Kindergarten teachers are not allowed to teach any knowledge, such as pinyin,” which transliterates Chinese, “but in year one of primary school children require this knowledge and skill,” she told FP. “So the parents let their children go to training schools and tutors.”
FAMILIES IN CHINA AND MOST ASIAN NATIONS TIED TO GLOBAL NEO-LIBERAL EDUCATION START EARLY IN PAYING EDUCATION FEES FOR AFTER-SCHOOL CORPORATE EDUCATION.
Education expert Professor Linyuan Guo-Brennan, who worked for the Ministry of Education in Beijing before relocating to Canada, called for more connection between the two stages of early education. “In kindergarten, teachers are not allowed to focus on literacy or math, but told to spend more time on social and emotional development,” she said. “Yet the moment kids go into primary school they face academic pressure.”
It’s hard to know the exact number of Chinese children who receive additional coaching before, or outside of, kindergarten. In 2013, an online survey of 45,758 Chinese parents from around the country showed almost half of children (47 percent) using English learning materials at between three and six years of age. According to state-run English language China Daily, a report by an unnamed online education institution showed homework-induced sleep deprivation for Chinese children begins when they are only three.
Shanghai’s wealthier parents also battle it out to get their children into elite, fee-paying schools that demand children pass an entrance exam. Kun Yao, a father in Shanghai, has a five-year-old son, Yifeng, in his last year of kindergarten, already preparing to take a private primary school entrance exam. His parents have signed him up for five additional classes every week, including piano, violin, swimming, English language, math and science tutoring, and mock interview practice. The lessons last from 60 to 180 minutes each. Every night, Yifeng studies for at least one additional hour on top of those classes. Yifeng’s experience is not extraordinary; according to consultancy McKinsey, six percent of Chinese students attended private primary schools in 2012.
Yao is confident that he’s making the right choice by pushing Yifeng so early, because private schools are better than public schools. “Just like when they’re applying for a top university or top firm, when it comes to primary school either your kid is a real genius, or you’d better make a long-term preparation effort,” said Yao. “I motivate my son by telling him that studying is like eating. It has to be done every day, and it has ingredients that you like and [some that] you dislike.”
Not all parents intend to send their children to private schools. But even those children heading for state primary schools, which offer students a guaranteed place dependent on residency status and location of their home, attend additional tutoring to prepare them for the future.
Earlier this year, parents reportedly waited in line for up to 40 hours to register their children — some as young as three — for classes at a popular training school in Shanghai, with demand far exceeding supply. Across the rest of China, training schools are booming. A report by market research company ReportStack last year reported that preschool education takes up around 57 percent of the online English language preschool market. Foreign toy company Lego has positioned itself as an early years educational brand in China. Parents pay up to $26 per hour for structured play sessions at Lego Education Centers.
Teachers observe that the stress is getting to parents and children alike.
Teachers observe that the stress is getting to parents and children alike.
Ting Wong’s daughter Doudou is now six, and recently won a place at her mother’s second choice of primary school. Ting says she has seen parents at her daughter’s training school behaving aggressively towards their children. “They ask them why they are crap and can’t do things.” Parents blame their children for not achieving highly enough and reprimand them for not trying harder, said Qiu. “I try to let them know their kids just need time to develop. But these parents are very busy and have little patience. They don’t spend a lot of time with their kids outside school. Sometimes I think they don’t really know their children.”
Even if the system was revised to reduce this early pressure, it’s likely the premature onset of academic competition would change very little. Xin Zhou, a professor of early childhood education at East China Normal University in Shanghai, explained. “The college entrance exam puts so much pressure on parents that they think it’s a good strategy to start early,” she said. “There is a saying in China. Don’t let your child lose the race at the starting line.”
We shared yesterday OMAR of Minnesota winning as a Democrat----we see here Pressley winning as a Democrat---both being FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING working for global 1% of MEN. There is no WIN for our US 99% of women in these elections ----these are ME global banking freemason/Greek players who could care less that the policies they push forward will kill 99% of women and especially our young girls.
So, Pressley being tied to Boston and global hedge fund corporation HARVARD will MOVE FORWARD RACE TO TOP COMMONER CORE ------all those Asian global neo-liberal education CRAM CORPORATIONS-----not caring how it kills families---parents and students. PRESSLEY is not a REAL left social progressive DEMOCRAT---she is a FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING 1% Clinton neo-liberal. It does not make any difference if the player winning is black, white, and/or brown---male or female.
CORTEZ, WARREN mentioned in this article same global banking 5% Clinton neo-liberals working for global 1% of MEN. Nothing populist for 99% of women with these far-right wing candidates.
Ayanna Pressley: African-American woman wins Massachusetts primary
Ayanna Pressley is set to become the first African-American woman elected to the US Congress in Massachusetts, following a primary upset.
The 44-year-old Boston city councillor beat House veteran Michael Capuano to secure the Democratic nomination.
She will not face a Republican opponent in November's mid-term election.
It is the latest in a series of victories for progressive, young and minority candidates representing the opposition party.
2018 has also seen a historic amount of female candidates run for Democratic nominations.
In a speech after her win, Ms Pressley said: "Change is coming and the future belongs to all of us."
She also referred to President Donald Trump as "a racist, misogynist, truly empathy bankrupt man" and hit out at wealth inequality in her seventh congressional district.
It is the only district in her state to have a majority non-white population.
An emotional video of her finding out she had won has been shared thousands of times online.
Her 66-year-old opponent has represented the district for two decades, and had not faced a primary challenger since he first won the nomination in 1998.
Both he and Ms Pressley are seen as progressives - but she advocated for a more "activist" style of leadership.
She also supports measures deemed radical by many, including abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a federal agency that has enforced President Trump's crackdown on illegal migrants.
Before becoming a councillor she worked for Senator John Kerry and Rep. Joseph Kennedy II - whose uncle, John F Kennedy held the seat Ms Pressley is set to win before he became president.
Ms Pressley's victory comes two months after a similar win against a 10-term opponent by 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York.
Ms Ocasio-Cortez congratulated Ms Pressley on Twitter and said the two had bonded over having people doubt their capability and experience.
Elsewhere in the state, Congressmen Joe Kennedy, 37, won a comfortable victory in his primary and fellow Democrat Richard Neal, 69, fended off a younger challenger.
Political analysts predict all nine of the state's House seats will remain Democratic in the November vote.
The changing face of the Democrats
Analysis by Anthony Zurcher, BBC News North America reporter
The Boston neighbourhoods that once helped send former President John F Kennedy and speaker of the House Tip O'Neill to Congress will soon be represented by Ayanna Pressley. Her upset victory on Tuesday reflects the changing face of the Democratic Party - younger, more progressive and more diverse.
That should both excite and scare Democratic leaders. There is boundless enthusiasm in their base, which can translate into electoral victories, but they may not be the politicians who take their party to the promised land.
Michael Capuano wasn't caught flat-footed in this race, either. He is well liked in his district and spent time and money to keep engaged and connected to his voters. They just wanted someone else.
So far, this anti-establishment sentiment in the Democratic Party hasn't cost their side seats, unlike the grass-roots Tea Party insurgency among Republicans during the Obama years. The Democratic incumbents who have been upended have been in safe districts.
This is a warning to the party, however, that they shouldn't be complacent. If their side makes big gains in the mid-terms, the base will expect results - or the intra-party combat may just be beginning.
Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, a favourite to run in the 2020 Presidential election, was uncontested for the state's Democratic nomination.
She will face Republican Geoff Diehl in November after he beat two other Republican candidates on Tuesday.
If you GOOGLE this article you will see a photo of children---in this case girls-----giving what is that HITLER global banking 1% ROMAN SALUTE------pretending to be #RESIST as a 99% populist symbol. China's MAO was the mirror of HITLER/STALIN as far-right wing global banking corporate fascists.
MOVING FORWARD in US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES is this same far-right corporate fascism hitting our US schools hardest as myth-making and propaganda replace our strong, democratic HOLDING POWER ACCOUNTABLE public K-university.
REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVES emphasize bringing global labor pool 99% new immigrants to what are US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES to be exposed to enslavement and deep poverty hits EVERY POPULATION GROUP-----this is not about resisting racism -----China's global 1% have done more harm to their own citizens then anyone else can.
As with US global banking 1% freemason STARS ---cultural arts music, stage, TV, movies----we are seeing brought to US the same Chinese propaganda used these several decades of MAOIST RE-EDUCATION of Chinese citizens.
THERE IS NOTHING EMPOWERING FOR WOMEN OR GIRLS MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE SMART CITIES FOR ONLY THE GLOBAL 1% OF MEN.
Here in US it is our US 99% of black children tied to the worst of low-income and performing city public K-12 who will be top ranking LOSERS in MOVING FORWARD RACE TO TOP. It will not matter if the smiling face of global banking players are black or women.

Comedian Kristina Wong's 'Radical Cram School' Teaches AAPI Girls How to Resist Racism
Wong's indie web series plays on children's television tropes while teaching Asian- and Pacific Islander-American girls history and tools to resist.
Sameer Rao Aug 28, 2018 2:27PM EDT
Imagine a children’s TV show in which an effusive host teaches Asian- and Pacific Islander-American girls media literacy, intersectionality and solidarity. Comedian Kristina Wong makes this vision possible with ”Radical Cram School,” the new independent web series she hosts and co-produces. She released all six episodes on YouTube in mid-August and publishes each on Facebook every week.
In a statement, Wong describes the series as “’Sesame Street’ for the Resistance.” Via email, she tells Colorlines that Liberty, the daughter of co-producer and friend Teddy Chao, inspired the show. ”This was almost a year into the Trump Presidency and [Chao] was worried that Liberty would start internalizing the racist and misogynist rhetoric around his campaign,” Wong explains. “He wanted me to sit down and talk to her and I blurted out, ‘We should make an Asian-American girl Town Hall web series!’ From there, Wong says, they began thinking of ways to equip young Asian girls with tools to resist “the ever-present racism and misogyny of our times.”
Wong counts The Radical Monarchs, an Oakland-based organization that combines anti-oppression education with Girl Scouts aesthetics and uniforms, as an influence. “They create opportunities for young Black and Brown girls to form a sisterhood and radically contribute to their community. I love their work and thought ‘Radical Cram School’ could be a space where Asian girls could learn about social justice and how to be allies to other movements.”
To that end, Wong plays an instructor teaching a group of Asian-American girls outfitted in yellow berets and rainbow sashes. Liberty and the daughters of other friends of Wong’s make up the class. ”Liberty, Ellie, Emi are Chinese American; Brooklyn is mixed Mexican and Japanese; Malia is mixed-race Pacific Islander; Alyssa is Cambodian; Kaisa is Pinay and Ethiopian; Kaya is Pinay and Black; and Emi Hope is mixed race Filipino, Japanese and Jewish,” she notes. ”We wanted this space to be specifically for [AAPI] girls, but also wanted to reflect the diversity of that identity.”
The show also highlights Asian-American activists Yuri Kochiyama and Grace Lee Boggs. “I think it’s important to acknowledge the labor of Black civil rights activists and to also point out that there were Asian Americans who worked alongside them. If these kids can see that Asian women who look like them also took up the labor of organizing, I hope it will inspire them.”
With Season One out and binge-ready, Wong has big plans for the next season of ”Radical Cram School” (which plays on a term for specialized extracurricular programs ).
“One member of the [first] class identifies as genderfluid, and I would like to figure out more episodes to support kids like them. I’d also like to see if we can work with a troop of young Asian-American boys to get them to embrace feminism and reject toxic masculinity,” Wong says.
Also on the agenda: “More music and puppets” and an episode addressing immigration given that one out of seven Asians in America is undocumented.

Democrats Push For More Records On Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Heard on All Things Considered
Democrats and Republicans in the Senate are at odds over access to past work experience for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. NPR's Ailsa Chang speaks about the current vetting process with Kristine Lucius, a former staff director of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and current executive vice president for policy at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.
AILSA CHANG, HOST:
When a president names a nominee to the Supreme Court, obviously both sides want to learn as much as they can about that person. President Trump's nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, has not only served more than a decade on the bench, he also had a long career in Republican politics, including serving as President George W. Bush's staff secretary. Democrats are demanding documents from that particular time, and Republicans say those documents won't be relevant, which raises the question - how has this worked before? Kristine Lucius spent 14 years with the Senate Judiciary Committee as Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy's top legal adviser. Welcome.
THERE ARE NO US SENATORS NOT FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING 1% CLINTON NEO-LIBERALS SO STAFF FOR JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WOULD BE AS WELL---WOMAN OR MAN.
KRISTINE LUCIUS: Thank you so much.
CHANG: In that job, you worked on, I understand, six Supreme Court nominations, going from John Roberts all the way to Neil Gorsuch. Was there ever any dispute while you were there on the committee over documents, over the scope of what was to be produced?
LUCIUS: Yes, absolutely. I recall there being a bipartisan request for both Elena Kagan's documents and Sonia Sotomayor's documents. In that instance, Jeff Sessions was the ranking member, Patrick Leahy was the chairman, and they worked together to request a full set of Elena Kagan's White House records from when she had been in the previous presidential administration, the Clinton administration. We did not get every single document we asked for. We asked for not just everything she had written, everything she had received, we also asked for any documents that she had even been referred to. That last set is what we did not ultimately receive. But what that says to you is the chair and ranking were working together in a bipartisan way to request that the Senate get as many documents as possible.
CHANG: So what jumps out to you - this dispute with respect to Kavanaugh's nomination over his documents, what jumps out to you as quite different from how document disputes or discussions about what documents will be turned over, how those discussions were handled in the past?
LUCIUS: I can say unequivocally what we're seeing with this process is the most partisan and the most reckless one I've seen because what we had here was the chairman on Friday night sending a partisan letter - there was no working with the ranking member to do this request, but he made a request that just ignored three years of the nominee's political appointee record.
CHANG: That's Kavanaugh's years as staff secretary under President George W. Bush. But their argument is, you know, staff secretary is more of this administrative or organizational job, that those years are not as relevant as Kavanaugh's years on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
WHO IS BFF WITH BUSH FAMILY? CLINTON/OBAMA ALL SAME GLOBAL BANKING 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS. ONE WORLD IS NEO-LIBERAL MEETS NEO-CON.
LUCIUS: That is pure spin. Judge Kavanaugh himself said under oath in his own confirmation hearing that his time as staff secretary to President Bush was the most useful to him as a judge. And what I am very concerned about is the people who selected him for the Supreme Court know what's in that record. But the American people and the 100 senators who are now evaluating him won't have access to the very same record.
CHANG: What substantive understanding of Kavanaugh might we glean from his years while he served as staff secretary to President Bush?
LUCIUS: There were a range of controversies that we believe he was involved in during these years, and they include things like torture, domestic surveillance and discrimination in marriage, whether to add that to the United States Constitution.
CHANG: It is clear, however, that the vast majority of Senate Democrats are going to vote no on Brett Kavanaugh regardless of how many documents get turned over. So why even mount such an extensive document request? I mean, the other side says this is just a political tactic to stall the process. The outcome is not going to change.
LUCIUS: I think the outcome actually would change if every senator and the American people get to see these documents because I think even...
CHANG: What makes you so sure that there's something that damning in the documents?
LUCIUS: Because there are many controversies that I believe he was involved in and because senators, at the end of the day, care about issues that affect their state, and they should not want to have records hidden from them.
CHANG: Is there any way for Democrats to get the documents they're seeking even if Republicans refuse to help?
LUCIUS: So yes. There are ways to get them. The question is whether the chairman is going to go it alone and schedule a hearing before there would be time to review documents. I believe these documents, in the end, will come out. However, I just don't understand why the chairman of a committee would not want to seek any relevant documents from a three-year period. That principle on its face shows that they're concerned about what controversies would be in that record. And I think that should trouble everyone on both sides of the aisle.
CHANG: Kristine Lucius spent a decade and a half as Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy's top legal adviser on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Thank you very much for joining us.
