    That’s pretty much why anyone who has other options avoids sending their kids to public school in the U.S. It’s gotten to be watered-down, lowest-common-denominator education/childcare. In addition, there’s tons of drugs and unpredictable people on campuses – and I’m sorry to say lots of teachers are stoned all day long

    • Ernest Bush says:

      If I had to shove the crap they teach every day off on young minds, I’d probably have to stay stoned all day.

      If you are a parent not using an alternative school or home schooling in states like Oregon, you are a fool. You will be the one reaping what they are sowing in public school, including perverted sex in elementary school and other fine subjects designed to scare and confuse your child. That is the purpose of public schools in many states.

      The amount of real education is minimal, yet teachers are threatening walkouts because they aren’t being paid enough.

      • Hivemind says:

        Heinlein once wrote a book in which a character couldn’t read. Not because he was stupid, but just because they probably didn’t teach reading in the school he went to. I used to think it was far fetched, until I learned about the “safe schools” propaganda being taught in Australia.

        Now they have every 6 year old kid questioning their gender.
        Also brainwashing them that straight white males are evil, exploitative pigs and something you absolutely don’t want to be, regardless of what your genitalia tells you. Is that kind of drivel healthy for young minds?

        • Kris Johanson says:

          Your gender is in all 50,000,000,000,000 of your cells. You either have XX or XY on Chromosome pair 23 unless you have a very rare birth defect.
          Getting brainwashed or changing your plumbing doesn’t change your gender and it won’t make you happy either

    • Sam Pyeatte says:

      Having to ban real science that questions the current fad of AGW, is truly a throw-back to the 1930s in Europe. Solid science would have no problem with being questioned. The way to develop good science is to stand up to all comers who question it. Eventually the testing will determine if the science is good or not. So far, the predictions of the AGW crowd have never panned out. That should tell them something.

    I believe it was FDR who said, and I paraphrase from memory, that his idea of a national school system was one that would produce a compliant work force. And Jimmy Carter made that dream possible.

  3. John 1200 says:

    I am watching Wild Wild Country on Netflix. It recounts the true story of a cult that established itself in Oregon. The religion’s original aims were soon corrupted and led to murder, intimidation, abuse and the rest. Most of the participants were self obsessed middle class or wealthy people.
    The Global Warming cult is no different.

    • Kris Johanson says:

      That was the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (means roughly ‘Lord God’). He took over a small town in Oregon with 50 people and shipped in 10,000+ self absorbed maniacs, took over the town council and proceeded to trash the place. Extremely interesting story…

  4. Michael Spencer says:

    Groupthink anyone? (It’s not 1984 – is it?)

    And yes! The Nazi book burning sums it up nicely …. ?

    You start banning books when you know you can’t substantiate your argument. The next or concurrent step is to ban intellectuals. We saw this with Mao’s Cultural Revolution and Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge. The people who could actually think (and there is only a small percentage) were sent off to work in the countryside for “re-education”.

    Here is another history lesson, to combat the Enlightenment & Scientific Revolution, the Catholic Church created the Index:

    Index Librorum Prohibitorum

    In the end it did not workout so well.

    I am not bothered by a book about the Flat Earth in my Physics Class. It is actually pretty interesting to see how much you can calculate with the Flat Earth assumption. You can actually do a lot, as you can pretty much work out the position of the planets with the Earth Centric, Ptolemic Model, but the calculations are extremely complicated. Eventually both theories can’t handle the anomalies, but it is a fun exercise.

    I think the photograph is very appropriate

  7. Caleb says:

    Someone needs to take the schools to court, and then appeal it all the way to the Supreme Court.

  8. Val says:

    The perversion of science is not limited to the indoctrination errr.. education of children. It has infiltrated the highest institutions which, today, masquerade as science.

    The pattern was set soon after formation of the UN’s edifice, the IPCC.

    So long as public officials continue to subsidise it, don’t expect the situation to change.
