Press Conference Announces Federal Effort to Challenge ESSA
Indiana Statehouse, Indianapolis, September 20, 2017
Update 9/21/17 3:58pm
There was confusion about the Executive Order number.
“EO 12866 was issued under the Clinton administration to create a process for making regulatory changes. This EO was amended by Obama to change the regulations under FERPA and by-pass Congress.” ~Karen Bracken
This can be found on the Federal Register, Docket ID: ED-2011-OM-0002
End of update.
Many of our followers are already aware that vigilant citizenry requires that we become the media. Since there was no media coverage of this newsworthy event, Indiana For Medical Freedom will gladly break this story.
Dr. Duke Pesta, Ph. D was the Master of Ceremony. Dr. Duke received his doctorate from Purdue University. “What’s going on in our public schools is shocking”, Dr. Duke begins. He goes on to explain that because of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), “We’re asking teachers, who have no real training in this kind of psychology, this kind of sociology to set aside their teaching of subjects like Math and Science, History and Reading, and to focus on behavioral issues that they are not qualified to address.” Dr. Pesta then poses the question, “Who’s assessing them? Shouldn’t you, parents, as stakeholders be allowed to assess our teachers?”
It’s unclear at this time who exactly turned off the mic in The People’s House, but it is believed that it was the Indiana Department of Education, whose office the press conference was just outside of. Perhaps they disagreed with the message, and thought they had the authority to silence concerned citizens in their own house? As medical freedom fighters, our organization and others across the country are very used to this behavior from elected officials.
What citizens need to know is that your students’ formerly protected information is being shared with state agencies, other faculty and other parents. The reason is because the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) was gutted by Executive Order 12866 by our former President.

Indiana For Medical Freedom encourages all Medical Freedom groups to look into this matter. Talk to your members. We knew something was going on with FERPA because parents have been reporting to us that other parents are demanding all students be fully vaccinated. We’ve had parents that work at schools report that school nurses are discussing that it’s suspicious that parents are not sharing medical records with them, calling parents “lazy” for using Pull-Ups training diapers. Recently an Indiana school corporation school nurse announced to faculty that ALL parents of students, regardless of a diagnosis, would be reported to the Indiana Department of Child Services if the student had toileting issues. Another one of our parents came to the press conference yesterday and told Dr. Pesta that her 15 year old had come home from school and went searching through her parents’ private documents trying to find “what they lied to her about” because her teachers are openly discussing in the classroom that they’ve all been lied to by their parents. THIS is ESSA. The socio-emotional engineering of our children.
Dr. Pesta is promoting a legal challenge to ESSA and demanding that FERPA be restored. Concerned citizens and parents can register here, to be added to an email list to receive action items and updates on this federal effort. Indiana For Medical Freedom encourages everyone reading this article to do so.
Dr. Pesta’s team will be uploading video of yesterday’s press conference and we’ll update this post with the video, once it is released.
