Community schools in America


"Lawmakers and the Obama administration are plotting to unconstitutionally commandeer local schools and turn them into `full service community schools` government centers that will usurp vast new responsibilities over children that have traditionally been handled by parents and families. Under the plan, adopted in the Senate last month as part of a massive `education bill` solidifying federal control over children and schools, federally funded so-called community schools will `target` families and children for `services` covering their `academic, physical, social, emotional, health, mental health, and other needs.` If Congress and the Obama administration get their way, these full-service parent-replacement centers will soon be coming to a community near you, along with the swarms of government workers in charge of `home visitation` and `parenting education` under the program. In fact, even without legislation to authorize it, Obama’s education bureaucracy has already started using tax funds to create the `community schools` nationwide..."

"Essentially, these Obama-backed `community` schools will become your child’s parents, nanny, educator, doctor, dentist, food source, psychiatrist, and more. It was not immediately clear whether hugs would be included, but practically everything else is. In other words, these `schools` will expand and accelerate the ongoing usurpation of the role of families and parents in raising the next generation of Americans. And just in case, parents can receive home visits from the swarms of federally funded school bureaucrats in addition to parenting lessons from Big Brother on how to care for Big Brother’s children. The federally funded `full-service community schools` will also be keeping watch for Big Brother, with tax funding allocated to help the parental-replacement centers create data-collection systems aimed at knowing everything about everyone... "

It looks familiar.

In Scotland the same type of programme is being implemented via GIRFEC and the Named Person scheme, another `whole child` approach which embraces the `whole community`.

Community Learning and Development (CLD) is a way of working with and supporting communities and links effectively with Curriculum for Excellence, in particular in relation to literacy, numeracy and health and well-being...
Family learning is a strong feature of work involving parents and children in many primary schools. Community groups and voluntary organisations help to deliver key outcomes for communities through their work with schools.
Soon to become a `whole world` approach.
