Enviroschools – do you know what your children are being taught?
Submitted by Peter Cresswell on Wed, 2009-07-01 23:04
The government has cancelled the Enviroschools programme, for which they earn my belated congratulations.
It’s a first step in beating back the forces of darkness, and if my saying that sounds like hyperbole then just listen right up.
The intellectual warriors of the left have long known that the best way to start their “long march through the culture” was first to capture the schools. (Or in Sue Bradford’s case, to start them.) Capture kids early before they realise the statist noose they’re putting their heads into, that’s been the story. As Australian Education Union president Pat Byrne said in an address to her union's conference, openly acknowledging the ideological bias that dominates the school system: /p>
Or, when it comes to the environmental indoctrination, as Michael Sanera and Jane S. Shaw say in their introduction to their book Facts, not Fear:
Sure does. And given the way they’ve been taught – and what their teachers are teaching them – it’s no wonder, as philosopher Stephen Hicks points out, that “results from a recent [American survey indicate] one in three schoolchildren fears that the Earth will no longer exist and over half believe it will be a nasty place by the time they grow up.”
Hicks’ short WSJ article linked above is a brilliant demonstration of why the educational methods involved violate what educator Lisa van Damme calls “the single most neglected issue in education”: the Hierarchy of Knowledge.
So having said all that, when you realise how successfully eco-fascists have taken over the education system – when you see what your children are being fed at a time when their brains are not yet even fully formed – when you see how brainwashed are the braindead graduates of the factory schools – chanting with heel-clicking blindness all the mantras they’ve been fed on “sustainability,” “protecting the planet,” and “saving the world” – “saving the planet” when they can’t even look after themselves yet – then you will know that cancelling the Enviroschools indoctrination programme is just one small step on the way to liberation from the grey ones.
The programme is not so much about educating children, but indoctrinating them – producing, as its website baldly states “a generation of innovative and motivated young people, who instinctively think and act sustainably [emphasis mine]” with all that such a thing implies, not excluding the dog whistle of politics.
Watch that video again at the Green Party’s Frog Blog to see just what “a generation of innovative and motivated young people, who instinctively think and act sustainably” actually looks like. They’re like a frog that’s been pithed before it’s even had a chance to become a tadpole.
So all this should now help you put in context The Herald’s announcement of the scheme’s axing:
Bravo, I say. Spend time and money on what schools should be doing, make the information on how they’re doing widely available instead of hiding it, and you’ll save taxpayers’ money and stop wasting children’s time – and stop endangering their future.
And bravo too for having an office with a spokesman. If that’s another sign a sign that PC is being rolled back, then I could well become a fan.
