Describing it as a highly regarded organization, Obamas Education Department recommends the Bill Ayers-founded Small Schools Workshop for use in creating learning environments that are supportive of perseverance.
The Small Schools Workshop is currently led by Mike Klonsky, a fellow 60′s radical of Bill Ayers, who once vowed to the communist government of China that he would lead the struggle to topple the U.S. imperialist ruling class.
The Department of Education document, Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century, also recommends the Coalition of Essential Schools, the progressive indoctrination movement behind CSCOPE and Common Core.
This is the same document that has drawn attention in recent months due to content outlining invasive data mining techniques for use on students.
Supposedly for the purpose of improving education, Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance reveals that our government intends to turn children into human guinea pigs whose every expression, emotion, and physiological trait will be read, monitored and evaluated through devices designed to monitor facial expression, EEG brain wave patterns, skin conductance, heart rate variability, posture, and eyetracking.

"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.
One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.
The Annenberg papers are quite extensive 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

REVOLUTION: Voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA [Maoist]
[Revolution] Interview with Bill Ayers, Revolution #63, October 1, 2006:
"On Progressive Education, Critical Thinking and the Cowardice of Some in Dangerous Times"
The RCP calls for the armed overthrow of the U.S. government...
From the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party (revcom.us or rwor.org) :
"Create Public Opinion, Seize Power: We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time when there is a major crack in the system, whenever it comes and wherever it comes from: an opening that makes it possible to bring the future Revolutionary Army of the Proletariat (R.A.P.) into the field and wage a revolutionary armed struggle that actually has a chance of winning.
And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":
not shocking any more
In late 1993, Bill Ayers, now an associate professor of education at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus, organized a team to put together a grant proposal to secure nearly $50 million from the Annenberg Challenge. The money was to be used by Ayers and co. to bolster the radical Local School Councils reform project that Ayers and Obama had championed back in 1988 through the ABCs.
The grant application was successful and in early 1995 Barack Obama was named chairman of the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Ayers was named co-chair of the Challenges operative and strategic body, the Chicago School Reform Collaborative. Ayers and Obama work together for the next five years on raising an additional $60 million in matching money from local foundations and corporations and using the money to intervene in the governance of the Chicago public schools.
The Challenge through a multi-million dollar Leadership Development Initiative intervened in the School Council elections in the middle of what was known as the Chicago School Wars. At the same time Chicago Mayor Richard Daley was pushing, successfully, to gut the power of the Councils.
“....learning environments that are supportive of perseverance”?
that reads like so much jibber jabber
what would the alternative be? an environment thats supportive of slack..sloth and giving up?
this is to be expected form the leading purveyors of nonsense I guess
Some background on Bill Ayers' SDS comrade, Michael Klonsky
(Chicago Annenberg Challenge-related)
"One of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrns comrades in the late 60s Students for a Democratic Society was Mike Klonsky. When Dohrn and Ayers moved in one direction toward the violent tactics of the Weather Underground, Klonsky, in the wake of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, dropped the pro-Russian communist politics of his parents and became a committed Maoist. As leader of the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) in 1977 [not to be confused with Communist Party USA. CPML no longer exists, CPUSA formed decades earlier and is still around-ETL], he travelled to Beijing and was toasted by the senior Beijing leadership.
When the crazy left of the 70s died in the 80s, Klonsky went to graduate school in education in Florida and then moved to Chicago.
While driving a cab there he [Michael Klonsky] was recruited by his old friend Bill Ayers to head up a new project called the Small Schools Workshop in 1991. Its offices were in the Department of Education building at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus where Ayers taught.
In 1995 the newly formed Chicago Annenberg Challenge headed by Ayers and Obama gave the Workshop a grant of $175,000.
The Annenberg Challenge also had its office space in the same building as Ayers Department and the Workshop, rent free courtesy of the University.
In 2008 Klonsky ran a blog on the official Obama campaign website on education policy and social justice teaching. When discussion of the Klonsky blog emerged in the blogosphere, it was promptly shut down by the campaign and all of the posts made by Klonsky were removed from the site."
In 1977, the October League was reorganized as the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) [again, not Communist Party USA (CPUSA) -ETL] and former SDS activist Michael Klonsky became party chairman. Also in 1977, Klonsky traveled to China and the CPML was recognized by the Chinese Communist Party as its official sister party in America.
In January 1981, Michael Klonsky resigned as party chairman, and the CPML disbanded that same year.
The previous Red Encyclopedia description of the CPML was incorrectly combined with that of the Communist Party USA (Marxist-Leninist).
He’s been doing small schools for decades.
Shouldn’t Bill Ayaers be considered a conservative? We are told only conservatives oppose the government and would attack it? Nancy Pelosi herself said as much.
Believe that Howard Machtinger has died. He was one of the worst of the Weathermen, a Bill Ayers equal, if you will.
Cathy Wilkerson was one of the leaders of the Wash. DC SDS/Weathermen and good pal of WUO leader Bernadine Dohrn
Mike Klonsky’s father, Fred, was a leader of the Communist Party, USA, I believe in either Wisconsin or California, or both.
Many of those listed are members of the marxist Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), Obama’s top red support organization in the country.
Go to www.keywiki.org for more information on many of those listed in the article. Also see Trevor Loudon’s book “The Enemies Within”, 2011, www.pacificfreedomfoundation.org.
The FrontPageMagazine database “www.DiscoverTheNetwork.org” also has a lot of information on these reds.
Yeah, but in reality, domestic terror attacks are almost always the work of some far left nut job.
Joe Stack (IRS plane crasher) sums up his manifesto with this, a popular Karl Marx quote and a stab at Capitalism...
The communist creed:
From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
The capitalist creed:
From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.
-Joe Stack (1956-2010)

Unabomber essay urges attacks on 'techno-industrial system'
July 27, 2002 | By Dan Eggen, Dominic Gates, Washington Post
In an article published this spring by Green Anarchy, a radical environmental newsletter, [unabomber Ted] Kaczynski calls on revolutionaries to "eliminate the entire techno-industrial system" by "hitting where it hurts" and disparages the activities of most radicals as "pointless." ..."
The fall 2001 issue of Green Anarchy published a letter from Kaczynski complaining that Subcomandante Marcos, leader of the Zapatista rebels in Chiapas, Mexico, was insufficiently pure as a revolutionary because he advocates bringing water and electricity to peasants....
The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (El Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional) is an anarcho communist army that is based in Mexico, mainly the poorest state in Mexico, Chiapas. In 1994, January 1st, they started their revolution and it has been increasingly successful throughout the years. Today, they are attempting non-violent struggles because the people told them too they are truly an army of the people. However, both the people and their army are realizing how unsuccessful that tactic is.
Their ideology, Zapatismo, is a mixture of indigenous teachings, autonomism, anarchism and communism. Although other revolutions are going on in the world (like the Southern African anarcho communist movement), the Zapatista revolution was deemed the first modern revolution of our time and its bringing hope to people not only in Mexico, but around the world.
Most of us already know this crap. But nobody will stop them from corrupting their own children’s brain.
A moot point.
Gov't Knows Best? White House creates 'nudge squad' to shape ...
Jul 30, 2013 - The federal government is hiring what it calls a Behavioral Insights ... a dozen federal departments and agencies including the Department of ...
The supreme "Nudger" .....
When does a nudge become a shove?
Americans may find out in coming years, as the federal government is setting up a 'behavioral insights team' to tinker with the way we accomplish everything from saving money and staying in school to losing weight and becoming more energy-efficient.
A document from Maya Shankar, a late-20s Yale graduate and former violin prodigy, sketches out the Obama administration's grand plans for behavioral science.
Shankar joined the Obama administration in April as a senior policy advisor at the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy.
