Amplify is a Murdoch/Joel Klein Common Core school system looting operation that steals many millions and millions of US school tax dollars while wrecking the entire school system. These looters (referring to Klein and others, not Murdoch) have huge influence in government via AIPAC. They control elections via media and money. I am shocked that the NYC school system abruptly terminated the Amplify contract for just one service (sic) that no one uses and which cost us all nearly $100 million a year. Maybe all the Amplify contracts will be terminated and perhaps the owners and runners of this scam be put in jail for fraud?
It is nothing short of amazing that these scam artists were stopped, at least, one small tentacle of their monstrous looting machine was stopped: City schools dumping $95 million computer system – NY Daily News:
The Achievement Reporting and Innovation System (ARIS) was implemented by the Education Department in 2007. It’s one of the city’s biggest computer systems, with records on more than 1 million current and former students. But it has been blasted by critics for being clunky and slow.
Former schools Chancellor Joel Klein, who oversaw the creation of ARIS, has also drawn fire for taking millions to maintain the system with his company Amplify.
The only thing Amplify was about was transferring tax money to private pockets within the Jewish community. In turn, a ten percent of this money goes to politicians to bribe them. The ‘let’s fix broken schools’ garbage is all about papering over the reality of black and Hispanic students. Namely, they are very difficult to teach! By forcing white/Asian schools to ape the ‘reforms’ of the black/Hispanic schools, we get chaos, a fall in learning, and the destruction of operationally good white schools.
Rupert Murdoch Wins Contract to Develop Common Core Tests along with his alliance with Bill Gates. What the hell is this? Why is this man who ran an illegal spy network in England, an Australian Jew, doing running our schools? These various smart alecks are pocketing billions of dollars ‘fixing’ schools by degrading working schools in the name of bring up to standard schools filled with unteachable minorities.
Who Is Rupert Murdoch? Jewish Israeli, Representing Rothschild Family, Federal Reserve Banks, Organized Crime in Control of US-EU Governments By Gordon Duff: and he along with the lawyer, Joel Stein, who was put in charge of NYC schools by Bloomberg, a fellow AIPAC conspirator, run many scams the worst of which are the warping of our elections, the corruption of Congress and the wholesale trashing of our public schools.
When News Corp split in two over a year ago, there was one surprise in the restructuring chaos – news of a recently-launched company division tasked with revolutionizing K-12 education.
CEO Rupert Murdoch had spoken passionately about the topic in the past, even meeting with the late Steve Jobs on numerous occasions to discuss the matter, and contacted a trusted confidante to turn that dream into a reality.
Joel Klein, the former New York City schools chief and no stranger to tough leadership himself having being the lead prosecutor in the anti-trust case against Microsoft at the start of the century, was charged with leading the new division.
After flubbing the anti-trust case with Bill Gates, here he is in an alliance with the same man! The tablets used by the schools were, of course, not Ipads but Microsoft-software products.

“Sleight of Hand” shows that, indeed, in no meaningful sense can Joel Klein be said to have had a deprived background, comparable to that of children from the projects today. It shows that in no sense can Joel Klein accurately attribute his success, not to an advantaged middle class family, but only to his teachers.
“Sleight of Hand” describes Joel Klein’s father, a federal postal employee who passed a civil service exam and later retired with a secure federal pension; and his mother, a bookkeeper. The Klein family income was about at the national median income, perhaps much higher. The public housing project in which young Joel lived was almost all white and attractively landscaped. Applicants to live in his project were screened by New York City Housing Authority investigators who visited these applicants’ previous homes to ensure that they had good furniture and that their children were well behaved. And while Klein claims that his depressed ambitions from a life of hardship were raised only when he encountered an inspiring high school teacher, the record shows that his educationally motivated family produced a young man who was already academically very successful by the sixth grade, if not before.
The other day I used test statistics to prove that ALL blacks across the nation nearly without any exceptions do equally badly and this, with counting those who go to predominantly white schools, they still do nearly the same: very poorly. Facing this reality is of highest importance. Why?
The racist right wing will use this as an excuse to dump education entirely in inner cities. While the left, being utterly delusional about this problem, will continue to blame racism and teachers for problems caused nearly entirely by black families and their belief systems and habits. Liberals are actually worse in this regard. Since 1970, they have systematically trashed white schools while letting blacks trash any schools they interact with! This has to stop! We can’t utterly destroy the entire system.
Joel Klein along with Bloomberg and others, happily created the voucher program which is the ‘get out of school free’ card for well to do whites. Obama uses white private schools for his own daughters and Bill Gates goes nowhere near public schools for his darling child, either.
The Republican school chancellor, Klein Is Out; Hearst Chairwoman In as NYC Schools Chancellor and she works for the Hearst Corporation and also isn’t an ‘educator’. She promises to bring 100 more charter schools into the city. Statistics show that charter schools do just as badly at teaching blacks and Hispanics as public schools.
One last thing about Joel Klein, his looting of the taxpayers and the Bilderberg Gang of which he is definitely a member: Joel I. Klein – Council on Foreign Relations along with Hillary Clinton and the Bushes, etc. And inside this, U.S. Education Reform and National Security – Council on Foreign Relations report by this clown:
;”Educational failure puts the United States’ future economic prosperity, global position, and physical safety at risk,” warns the Task Force, chaired by Joel I. Klein, former head of New York City public schools, and Condoleezza Rice, former U.S. secretary of state. The country “will not be able to keep pace—much less lead—globally unless it moves to fix the problems it has allowed to fester for too long,” argues the Task Force.
The report notes that while the United States invests more in K-12 public education than many other developed countries, its students are ill prepared to compete with their global peers. According to the results of the 2009 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), an international assessment that measures the performance of 15-year-olds in reading, mathematics, and science every three years, U.S. students rank fourteenth in reading, twenty-fifth in math, and seventeenth in science compared to students in other industrialized countries.
Though there are many successful individual schools and promising reform efforts, the national statistics on educational outcomes are disheartening:
More than 25 percent of students fail to graduate from high school in four years; for African-American and Hispanic students, this number is approaching 40 percent.
While Ferguson waits anxiously for grand jury’s decision to see if blacks want to further loot and burn the city there, we have to realize that a national conversation about how blacks are nearly utterly incapable of learning in ANY schools has to commence. A lot of poor whites can’t learn anything, either and this isn’t the schools fault. It lies squarely at home, dysfunctional families, cynical rich people making money off of degrading schools and teaching students to ape thugs and whores, etc.
Gary Rubinstein: Is P-Tech a Miracle School or a Failing School? tells a typical story about a NYC high school that was ‘reformed’ and Obama mentions this school in his State of the Union speech praising it…and the failure rate there is even WORSE than before the ‘reforms’ and the tests show the students are doing WORSE than ever before, too! But lying about this is epic and identical to the Chicago school I wrote about which, after reforms, also did worse while being held up as a model for fixing schools.
The Black-White Test Score Gap by CHRISTOPHER JENCKS and MEREDITH PHILLIPS, Brookings Institution Press back in 1998, says:
–When black or mixed-race children are raised in white rather than black homes, their preadolescent test scores rise dramatically. Black adoptees’ scores seem to fall in adolescence, but this is what we would expect if, as seems likely, their social and cultural environment comes to resemble that of other black adolescents and becomes less like that of the average white adolescent.
–Even nonverbal IQ scores are sensitive to environmental change. Scores on nonverbal IQ tests have risen dramatically throughout the world since the 1930s. The average white scored higher on the Stanford-Binet in 1978 than 82 percent of whites who took the test in 1932. Such findings reinforce the implications of adoption studies: large environmental changes can have a large impact on test performance.
–Black-white differences in academic achievement have also narrowed throughout the twentieth century. The best trend data come from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which has been testing seventeen-year-olds since 1971 and has repeated many of the same items year after year. Figure 1-2 shows that the black-white reading gap narrowed from 1.25 standard deviations in 1971 to 0.69 standard deviations in 1996. The math gap fell from 1.33 to 0.89 standard deviations. When Min-Hsiung Huang and Robert Hauser analyzed vocabulary scores for adults born between 1909 and 1969, the black-white gap also narrowed by half.
All this is simple to understand: black culture is anti-education. Profoundly anti-education. Also, the black/white gap shrank by 50% before desegregation. Falling Behind – Education Next : Education Next even dares to mention the worsening gap today. Race Gap: Blacks Fall Further Behind Under Obama –as white children are pulled from inner city schools in order to get them away from black influences and violence.
And what are black politicians worried about? Aside from the ‘cops are killers’ and ‘we thinks whites, not blacks, are killing blacks’ we have this: Racial inequity in student discipline at Portland Public Schools is getting worse, despite millions spent. They don’t want their children to be disciplined in school anymore than they want their antisocial teens and young adults arrested by the cops.
Why is it, in every school system, black students are suspended or in more trouble than white students? Test scores tell the truth: they are busy doing bad things instead of cooperating with teachers. In the above article about the terrible things black students suffer when they go to school has this gem:
But Briggs, a stay-at-home dad, says that white students who also misbehaved didn’t get in trouble nearly as often. “It was always African-American boys in there,” he says.
He now has a 12-year-old son who has been to five Portland schools in seven years. His son has had good stretches when the school rarely called Briggs, and bad ones when the boy talked back to teachers and fought with classmates. His son has been suspended more times than Briggs can remember and spent time in behavior rooms for disruptive students.
So, his dad (I bet he does little housework!) whines about his kid being disciplined and then cooks up this imaginary story about how white students can be as antisocial and out of control and nothing happens to them. Zero proof of this is shown, I do know from family experience that yes, white students ARE suspended. Even if they are in a fight begun by black students who gang up on various kids in hallways! Everyone is suspended because schools are terrified of being sued by black parents if they go after the bullies.
When this happened to my own child, I pulled him from the school the next day and that was the end of that! Never in trouble again, of course, because there are no violent gangs (just some bully individuals who were a much smaller percentage) fighting where he went to school.
