Alabama State Superintendent of Schools, Tommy Bice, is leading the way into the dangerous new area of government over-reach into mental health assessments based on national counseling standards and mental health/behavioral goals for all students K-12th grade. Superintendent Bice serves as an official with approval by Governor Bentley, who is also the president of the state school board. Republican Governor Bentley is following the same education philosophy as President Obama whose plans include adding psychological testing to the NAEP -National Assessment of Educational Progress in 2017. (See “STOP PRESIDENT OBAMA’S MOVE INTO “THE DARK SIDE OF NATIONAL TESTING” linked below.) June 11th, at 10:30 am the Alabama state school board will meet to vote to accept or reject the K-12th grade Mental Health plan. Superintendent Bice has worked closely with the National Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA to put together a “Comprehensive Plan” set to collect data through assessments of all students that will be used to develop the furthest reach into behavior assessment and training ever before seen in American Public Schools. This “social engineer” planning would transform Alabama’s schools into a system which more resembles a behavior training laboratory than a school system with an academic mission. The plan was delivered to the State School Board and has been under controversy after it was closely examined. For all the wonderful people in Alabama, for their children, grandchildren and also importantly for all of America, where this could spread if we allow it, please help bring this dangerous plan to the light. Read the links provided below and take action! If you live in Alabama or if you know anyone in Alabama ask them to contact the Alabama state school board (listed below), the state superintendent (334-242-9700), the Governor (334-242-7100).

**UPDATE — The Alabama State School Board did not pass the K-12 Mental Health Plan due to opposition!! Thanks to all the people who stood up to expose this. We know these “social engineers” don’t give up so we will keep watching and taking action. All states are subject to have this type of “comprehensive” mental health for all being put into place. More to come on this…….
