Department of Education Website Down   13 comments

By Susie Schnell
Education Week  reports that hackers got into the Department of Education’s site and so they shut their site down indefinitely.
Baloney! No hackers got into the system. I’ll tell you what’s going on.
Researchers from around the nation have been gathering research from US  Dept of Ed documents so we can get them to you directly from the source  to prove everything we say. Because everyone is now linking to this site and because now we have so many national groups joining the fight, they pulled the curtain closed and are hiding behind it.
The Dept of Ed is  hiding from US citizens! Not only do we have huge groups in  every state looking daily at these documents now, but we also have the  research crews of Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Freedom Works, Fox NewsUnited Families International and many others  all across the nation for  the FIRST TIME this week paying attention to what is going on with our  education system and realizing we’re being lied to.
The same  thing happened a few days after Agenda 21 was exposed nationally. After a year of researching the U.N. site easily, all of a sudden they went dark and no one can access their pages anymore. How dare they blame their lack of transparency on hackers. You know you are onto something really big when the entire U.S. Department of Education website closes down because you have exposed them.  What a smokescreen!

Thank you, Susie Schnell, for researching and writing this post.  I agree with Susie.  Time will prove it to everyone, one way or another.  In a reasonable amount of time, if the Department reposts what was there before, we’ll be proven wrong.  Then there really were hackers desperate to get to the educational secrets that hadn’t been posted openly.  Hmm.

But if time passes and the documents and speeches never resurface, then the Dept. of Ed really is deliberately hiding from the American citizen-researcher.  Can you believe it?

Either way, we are not shut down, because we’ve saved the important documents and speeches offline.

The show will go on.

  1. I agree as well. I had been researching Agenda 21 in the fall, and after Glenn Beck’s book Agenda 21 was released (Complete with sources and information to research Agenda 21) all of the sudden, all of my history and bookmarks led me to pages that no longer existed. They took the information off of the internet. Through some round about way on another website, I was able to copy the document to my computer.

  2. I want to make it clear to readers that only parts of the website are down, not the whole thing. It was reported by Education Week that “Parts of the website that are inaccessible include sections on Race to the Top, Investing in Innovation, waivers, and general policy and guidance letters.”

  3. The website has been down for more than 2 days. If you tried to get to ed.gov (at the beginning of the week) it sent you to NCES page. Will be interesting to see which documents are suppressed.

  4. We’ve been doing research in Alabama on our state website and took screen shots. The ALSDE had taken down many pages and when questioned they have now reappeared, but different. They have also changed some of their pages to hide what they have been doing with a very successful program in Alabama called the Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) and the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI). We believe they, the ALSDE has repurposed millions of dollars to implement Common Core/College and Career Readiness Standards instead of continuing the highly successful programs ARI and AMSTI using personnel formally hired for the reading and math programs. We keep digging.

  5. Seems like a really good argument to keep schools from keeping any personally identifiable information in a database. If the Dept of Ed. site is so insecure that it must be shut down indefinitely, how can any other site be reasonably secure?

  6. Another thing that is shocking is an article that Diane Ravitch posted on her blog about Jeb Bush and his ties to Microsoft and CC from the Tampa Tribune, I believe, has also disappeared. Thankfully a second party keeps track of all those and has it. Whats up with that? Jeb has stuff to hide too about CC apparently.
    I think we need to start calling people out and force them to start answering questions.which taxpayers and parents need to know. And not neccessarily need but have the right to know since it is our money.

  7. i recommend everybody read this. learn about communitarianism third way. look for your representatives on the list. common core is a dialectic process being pushed from both sides, my 7th grader had to read a book called revolver. horrific story, ” there is always a third way. ” quote from the book which belittles the bible, has rape,children being stalked and permissive theft from wealthy. appalling, third way, common core. destructive.

  8. Can you contact me? I’d like to compare what you’re doing with what Wisconsin is doing.

  9. WE HVETO STAND UP AND FIGHT THISCOMMON CORE !! THERE IS A BOOK OUT BY KRIS NIELSEN..THAT IS AVAIABLE ON AMAZON THAT I HAVE ALREADY SENT FOR AND IHVE CONTACTED AS MANY “BUREAUCRATIC BSERS” THAT I CAN THINK OF. I AM A SCHOOL BOARD DIRECTOR AT OUR SCHOOL AND IT IS AMAZING TO SEE HOW MAY TEACHERS ETC THAT HAVEN’T HEARD OF ‘COMMON CORE” WE HAVE TO STAND AND FIGHT TO GET OUR SCHOOLS BACK ON THERIGHT TRACK! RACE TO THE TOP NOW BECAME RACE TO THE MIDDLE!

  10. I went on the U.S. Department of Education’s website and the Race to the Top section is back up and running; however, I was not able to find the Race to the Top Executive Summary dated 2009 which lists “Data Systems to Support Instruction,” letter C, “Fully implementing a statewide longitudinal data system.” The only Race to the Top Executive Summary I could find on their site was one titled, “Race to the Top – District dated August 30, 2012.” And the letter C, and, in fact, all the Overview of Programs and Points listed seem to look totally different. Now, I hope that they didn’t play a fast-one on us. Can you let me know if you can find the 2009 Executive Summary on their site?

  11. Idaho did me a great favor, a lot of our documents are on the state websites. I wonder how long that will last.

  12. Good news: a lot of the documents, if not all, are back up now on the DOE website. If anyone can’t find something important, please speak up. Alisa Ellis has screen shots of many documents that she is willing to share.
