What are your children learning in school?
I came across something pretty unsettling (although not surprising) tonight when I was browsing around the internet. The following are two pages from a workbook published by Pearson PLC, which is the largest book publisher in the world and the second largest education company.
So what do they have in one of their books? Take a look. This is from “Grammar and Writing Practice Book.”
What? Can the brainwashing of children be any more obvious? Teachers are instructing their students to repeat this? “Remember, students, always obey the government!”
And then there’s this page, which takes a turn towards the environmental side of things…
This would be comical if it weren’t so sad. “We are poisoning ourselves slowly.” What a great thing to tell a bunch of little kids. Do we really want our children’s education to involve telling them that they are destroying the earth, driving is bad, and that oil tankers are ruining the ocean? Maybe some parents want to tell their children this stuff, and that’s fine, but what about the parents who don’t want to teach their children this?
Or do people even care about this? Have we reached the point that we’re so used to government involved in our lives that society sees nothing wrong with this?
