Public school overreaches: Mandatory psych exams?

If Democrat Assemblywoman Margaret Markey has her way, all public school students in New York will be required to undergo repeated mandatory psychological evaluations. As proposed, Markey’s bill would require that families allow their children to be subjected to such testing twice in elementary school and twice in secondary grades. 

Introduced last October, the disturbing proposal was referred to the education committee on January 8, 2014. The bill, AO 8186, would amend current law requiring physical health examinations to include the following language:

EACH SUCH CERTIFICATE SHALL ALSO STATE THAT A PSYCHOLOGICAL EXAMINATION WAS PERFORMED AND THAT THE CHILD IS MENTALLY FIT TO PERMIT ATTENDANCE AT SCHOOL.

Additionally, each student’s entire health history must be made available to the school district upon request. This news interview* (video) provides background.

Those who are paying attention are aware that the Obama administration’s implementation of the Common Core left-wing “standards” include propagandizing American students. The scheme also enables data mining of student information, including out-of-school activities and their parent’s political involvement and religious beliefs.

Since the name Common Core has become so incendiary, Arizona’s Gov. Jan Brewer and Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal have deceptively collaborated to re-christen it “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards,” in an effort to make it more palatable to the unsuspecting.

Many will remember this shocking video of a father merely questioning the implementation of Common Core getting hauled out of a meeting by security — and arrested!  The left is in this for the long haul and will not only go to any lengths to silence dissent — they want to control our children from the earliest ages. Obama has stated America needs to start enrolling 4-year-olds in all-day pre-K to ensure children are “better prepared for the demands of the global economy” and to help parents save on “child-care costs.”

    The left wants to own us. The most effective way is through indoctrinating our children. Institutionalizing them in public school warehouses run by liberal union members guarantees a compliant populace.

    Who determines the mental stability of the children being tests? What if your child is wrongly evaluated by these liberal “professionals?” Chances are this record follows them throughout life, restricting their options for higher education and employment since they are marked as potentially risky “deviants” from the educrats standards of norm. This overreach should terrify any thinking American.

    Here’s a toe curling fact exposing the effects of public school education. A Pew poll illustrated the startling fact that while Americans overall oppose Socialism, Socialism has more fans than opponents among the under 30 crowd! Forty-nine percent of people in that age bracket say they have a positive view of Socialism; only 43 percent say they have a negative view. With this type of thinking, we are ripe for takeover. Thank the liberal teacher’s and their unions. The youth vote was essential in TWICE elevating Obama into the presidency.

    The deplorable truth is most parents have no idea of how the education system has eroded since they were students and the extent to which their children are being brainwashed.

    THIS is the National Education Association and American Federation of Teachers agenda. Listen carefully to the words of the former NEA legal counsel as he clearly outlines what matters most to those who spend more time with our children and grandchildren than their parents do. His chilling words should be committed to memory!

    It is the teachers and school administrators who need psychological exams, proficiency testing and exams on the Constitution. Hope everyone read December 2013 Imprimis on “A rebirth of Liberty and Learning”. The teacher’s unions are truly the enemies of true learning and liberty. Leftist liberalism is indeed evil,

    No surprise but some interesting information. The liberal Margaret Markey, now 72, graduated from Berkeley. Her radical training was instilled early. Her husband Charles Markey recently retired as State Supreme Court Judge. Wonder what type of judgments he rendered.

    You cannot defeat an enemy until you identify and name the enemy AND HIS WEAPONS. This is not a simple matter of a few misguided leftists who just don’t understand. This is a war against American freedom, and America herself. Just who are the “left” and why do they “love” the children? Why does Obamao want to get the little kiddies out of the home and into the hands of government educators? Why was then-Gov. Janet Napolitano so determined to force “all-day, taxpayer-funded kindergarten” on the citizens of AZ and a gullible state legislature? Why do they hate home-schooling, parochial schooling, charter schooling?

    “The youth of today is ever the people of tomorrow. For this reason we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age, at an age when human beings are still unperverted and therefore unspoiled. This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future, upon its youth. And this new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”
    –Adolph Hitler 1937

    “Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the communists…The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course…Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty. But, you will say, we destroy the most hallowed of relations when we replace home education by social…The communists have not invented the intervention of society in education; they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention…The bourgeois claptrap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parent and child, becomes all the more disgusting…”
    –Karl Marx, Manifesto of the Communist Party

    Step 1-force mothers out of the family & into the work force, making all adults become workers of the State, and destroying the family.
    Step 2-force children from infancy into government schools for indoctrination & isolation from any possible exposure to family values, making the State the role model.
    Step 3-destroy free enterprise to make the State the provider of all, insuring dependence and subjugation.
    Step 4-destroy the Church and make the State the religion of the masses, with heavy penalties for free speech and public dissent.

    Where on the ladder has Obamao put US? They are not “the left,” not “progressives,” not any other euphemism they adopt for subterfuge. They are THE DESTROYERS.

    Oh God, open our eyes that we may see; open our ears that we may hear; and loose our tongues that we may share the word. God bless America.
