Ping EMPHASIS to this thread to HomeSchoolers in my List: thelastinkling,davidosborne, metmom, tired of taxes
I’m going to add quite a bit of information onto this thread. Please, please, please, if you don’t understand something ask me! I have a very bad habit of killing mosquitoes with bricks. In other words, I offer up info that tends to make people’s eyes roll back in their heads. But this is important, so please keep coming back and checking this thread.
The point in referencing that, stories were coming out about putting restrictions on school lunches. I started following the stories and found that the grant initiatives went back to the same source as the animal tagging sources.
See my thread here:
Animal Tagging and SCHOOL LUNCHES???
I couldn't get over the relation! I found they both came from USDA related sources.
In RESEARCHING this further, I ran into articles from the HSLDA. It seems there were the first and savvy out on the internet and knew all about this beast. The beast is called:
Healthy People 2010
HSLDA has been covering Healthy People 2010
Healthy People 2010 is huge. It has 28 categorized initiatives encompased that branch off into far reaching initiatives with public private partnerships and grants programs.
Healthy People 2010 has been being introduced incrementally. In sections, it looks harmless; but when the initiatives are zipped together, it is devastating.
One of the aims of Healthy People 2010 is to end private ownership and rights. It makes us stakeholders of our properties. It makes us stakeholders of our personal rights. That means of our health and our children.
State departments of educations have been encompassing in loco parentis in their Healthy Schools programs. Healthy Schools is the evil offspring of Health People 2010. This is about MORE than issuing birth control. THIS is about changing parental rights with children to STAKEHOLDERS.
In the United States, courts often must determine who the legal parents are among the many adults who might be involved in planning, conceiving, birthing, and raising a child. Judges in several states have seized upon the idea of psychological parenthood to award legal parent status to adults who are not related to children by blood, adoption, or marriage. They have done so even over the objection of the childs biological parent. Advances in the same-sex marriage debate have encouraged group marriage advocates who wish to break open the two-person understanding of marriage and parenthood.
The National Health Education Standards has gone further and envoked in loco parentis by redefining parents as families. Families have been classified as stakeholders. Childrens stakeholders are being identified as any entity that is seen as a resource in a childs community. The legal definition of stakeholder is a third party who temporarily holds money or property while its owner is still being determined.
Schools often have insufficient resources to provide a comprehensive and multifaceted continuum of interventions. By having direct contact with families and key informants in the community, schools are better able to identify barriers to student success and well-being and better equipped to develop solutions that overcome these barriers. Schools can enhance home-school links by sharing concerns with families and developing solutions that address students unique needs.
In addition to the benefits for students education and well-being, students families, and school staff, there are reciprocal benefits for community agencies who partner with schools. Businesses, the justice system, community health and safety systems, and others may benefit from a healthier population. Community agencies and organizations that provide services to children and families often gain a more visible profile when they become partners with schools.
Examples of neighborhood stakeholders in student health and well-being are students themselves, as well as their families and teachers. Other school staff, community business owners, police, faith-based institutions, universities and colleges, local health departments, health and mental health service providers, dentists, emergency medical services, educators of first-aid, departments of health, justice, education and social services, and other agencies that serve families have stakes in the well-being of the student population and school staff. Communicate regularly with partners and potential partners in order to learn what each has to offer.
Hi, Cal! How’re you doing? Thanks for the ping.
I still don’t know who I’ll be supporting, but I see that Hunter wants school vouchers. I oppose school vouchers, so that part of Hunter’s plan does turn me off.
