KENNER CHARTER SCHOOL, KDHSA....... ACADEMIC PLANS LEAN LEFT TO UN AND MARXISM

Kenner Discovery Health Sciences Academy (KDHSA)

A new charter school is coming to Kenner...and eventually will expand to the West Bank. This school was mentioned as part of Kenner's "economic development" plan by businessman Henry Shane (JEDCO, etc etc) about a year ago. ..... and I believe he has a financial interest in the school and he is on the Board of Directors . http://discoveryhsf.o...­

“For now our school, Kenner Discovery Health Sciences Academy (KDHSA), will be located at the Maggiore
School, which has been closed, while our new home is being constructed in the Loyola Tract,” said Patty Glaser who is the chief executive officer and founding head of the new school.
Glaser said the charter school will open in August 2013

This month's Kenner Star has this article on the school : http://www.kennerstar...­

Further investigation of the school's website reveals some alarming information.

Their "VISION" includes children learning about "sustainable environment" http://discoveryhsf.o...­

According to their ACADEMICS page...... teaching will be based on the philosophy of a well known MARXIST, Lev Vygotsky and will, of course, be centered on the Common Core State Standards.
http://discoveryhsf.o...­
ARTICLE on Vygotsky: http://www.americanth...­

Vygotsky apparently advocated "human self emancipation"..... a Marxist theory that states private property and individual accomplishment are the roots of all evil and must be eradicated for the good of all.
http://www.workerslib...­

The school will be guided by the Common Core State Standards (Dr. Glaser is an "expert) and the PARCC assessments in conjunction with 23 other states !!!

The CULTURAL page is FULL of left leaning academic "experts:

Victoria Purcell Gates
Member of Teaching Tolerance...... a project of the southern Poverty Law Center. They advocate for Social Justice and cover topics like Environmental Racism, Classism, Childrens Bill of Rights, Analyzing social issues thru Math, Tolerance and Acceptance using a MEXICAN tradition to start the discussion.


Ms Gates also advocates for home visits and assessments, visits and assessments of communities.... essentially "spying" on student's homes and environments. she says the LAST place to meet with parents shOuld be in the school!! (What is she afraid they will see or hear???)

William Pinar
A "reconceptualist" educator focusing on Early Childhood. Today, this concept seems to rely heavily on the United Nations ....... including their "Convention on the Rights of the Child" Treaty and other UN "rights" initiatives that are essentially socialist/communist.
http://extranet.edfac...­

So far, this new school seems to lack any American values or focus........ every "philosophy" and name I have looked at so far is related to the radical leftist theories of collectivism, Marxism, social justice etc!!!
Sound like the PERFECT place for leftist indoctrination.......

A couple weeks ago at the Agency Based Education Conference, Alisa Ellis spoke on the subject of tying Common Core to its global origins. Here is that presentation. I encourage you to share this with everyone you can, especially legislators.

MORE Lev Vygotsky AND NOW "TOOLS"
"People think that play is running around like maniacs. To us it's a very serious thing," said Deborah Leong, professor emerita of psychology at Metropolitan State College of Denver. She collaborated with a Russian emigre colleague, Elena Bodrova, who imported Vygotsky's ideas to the United States and developed Tools in the early 1990s.

There is relatively little rigorous research on the effectiveness of Tools. The U.S. Education Department's What Works Clearinghouse said only one 2008 study met its evidence standards. The research, the department said, showed "no discernible effects in oral language, print knowledge, cognition or math.”
