School funding now being tied to vaccination rates of children

the article says Nov 2011, but still...


For years, many public school advocates have been arguing that the American education system has become more of a laboratory of social engineering than an environment to teach and prepare children for the jobs and careers they would engage in after graduation. In fact, the federal government has issued mandate after mandate to the states to implement policies that many deem political correctness, and have tied federal funding to those programs.

Now it appears that states are joining in on forced social engineering as well as a new expose on anIllinois statute shows that school funding can be, and is being tied to the vaccination rates of students in a given school, or school district.

Section 27-8.1.7 of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS)Health examinations and immunizationslaw explains that if a school vaccination rate falls below 90 percent, state aid payments to that school are automatically cut by 10 percent until the school comes into "compliance" (http://www.isbe.state.il.us/account...).

According to the current Illinois General State Aid fiscal schedule, Illinois schools receive $6,119 per student from the state. Ten percent of this amount equates to roughly $612. So if a school has 2,000 students, for instance, and it maintains at least a 90 percent vaccination rate, it will receive $12,238,000 from the state per year. But if the vaccination rate falls below 90 percent at the same school, a whopping $1,223,800 will be shaved off this amount (http://nced.info/schoolfinance/file...).– Natural News

Interestingly, the State of Illinois has ranked between 32nd and 35th nationwide in nearly all education categories over the past four years.

Another state that is has chosen to dedicate a large portion of its resources to vaccinations in the education system is California, where Governor Brown has begun a crusade to impose the controversial HPV vaccination on school age girls. This vaccination has come under scrutiny for hundreds of deaths linked to girls after they took the vaccine, and many have also been diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome. It is also noted that the company that profits from Gardasil made a campaign donation to Governor Brown after this new policy was instituted.

Over the past two decades, American students have fallen out of the top 10 worldwide in most educational categories, even as the federal and state budgets for education have been increased nearly 200%. This implies that even with more money, the funding has not been used in a manner to increase and improve education, and in many cases, the monies were used to impose social mandates over educational ones. The states of Illinois and California justify these assessments, and the fact that educational monies are being used or withheld to force students into receiving vaccinations shows that the focus of state governments are on other issues than improving education and literacy for the children in their states.

"Until the school comes into 'compliance.'"
Exemptions are within compliance, so I wonder if they count. It wouldn't make sense otherwise, because it is not up to the schools to decide whether children get vaccinated, and they are not allowed to deny a child based on vaccination status if the child is exempt.

So what are they going to do if more people stop vaccinating? Turn some away?

My DH is a teacher in Illinois and this is not true.  He's been a teacher since 2004, has been his Union's President for the last 4 years, and is tied in pretty closely to the Administration side of things as a result of that and his Master's Degree (in Admin.).  Vaccines have never (to date) had anything to do with funding.

The article is 2 years old.  Maybe that's why?  Maybe they just don't exist anymore?
