Connecticut Looks To Mandate Early Indoctrination Of ‘Climate Change’ At Schools

See, now, if I was a Leftist, I would be screeching about this being the same thing they did in the Third Reich, that Hitler was literally forcing indoctrination on kids for his pet causes. I wouldn’t say that, though


A bill introduced recently in the Connecticut General Assembly is proposing that Connecticut public schools be required to teach students about climate change starting in their earliest years.

The short text of the proposed legislation, H.B. No. 5011, demands that existing statutes governing state education be amended “to require that the science curriculum of the prescribed courses of study for public schools include the teaching of climate change and that such teaching begin in elementary school.”

“A lot of schools make the study of climate change an elective, and I don’t believe it should be an elective,” Democratic state Rep. Christine Palm, who introduced the bill, told the Associated Press. “I think it should be mandatory, and I think it should be early so there’s no excuse for kids to grow up ignorant of what’s at stake.”

Palm maintained to the AP that while she would love to legally force the teaching of poetry, climate change is simply much more important. “I’d love to see poetry be mandated. That’s never going to happen,” Palm said. “That’s not life or death.”

Yeah, I won’t go down the Nazi road. More like the Communism road, where Lenin said “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” Karl Marx wanted every child to be in a state school the minute they can get along without a mother’s care. Either way, Commie or Nazi, they’re rooted in authoritarianism, which very much wants to indoctrinate kids, rather than teach them. And Warmists are happy to indoctrinate kids.

They just aren’t happy practicing what they preach, like giving up their own use of fossil fuels and making their lives carbon neutral.

    While China teaches science in science class, American right-wingers want to teach their religion in science classes.

    Here’s the text of the Connecticut law:

    That section 10-16b of the general statutes be amended to require
    that the science curriculum of the prescribed courses of study for
    public schools include the teaching of climate change and that such
    teaching begin in elementary school.

    Most states have policies regarding school curricula, e.g., sex education, US government, health, math, history, English, literature, science…. Many Red State schools teach creationism and intelligent design!

    Would you address the science of global warming in schools at all?

    You’re doing that leftist thing again. There is no “science of global warming”. There is climate science and I see no reason to teach it in school. Climate science is a subject for college. Basic science is taught in high school, not specialties just like basic Health is taught in school but not surgery.

    BTW, “Many Red State schools teach creationism and intelligent design!” is a red herring. Has nothing to do with climate change. Just so you know, creationism is theology not science. Theology is not taught in schools but should be.

    That’s not much of a case. The whole point of public education is instruction to a common standard, with the state determining the standard. It is a weak argument that you are OK with government bureaucrats deciding what to teach your kids, but not that one item you don’t like. State education = indoctrination by the state and everything that comes with that. If you don’t like it, get a private tutor and decide for yourself what is good for your kids to know.

    There are lots of things missing from public education. Things every American should know.
    1. College is a business. They charge you a fee for their service. It is very profitable for the people running the college. Any student should decide if the cost is worth the product before agreeing to pay the cost.
    2. How to determine if you are being sold snake oil. Acupuncture, and 98% of herbal remedies are fraudulent products.
    3. How to safely drive a car.
    4. How to safely use a firearm.
    5. How banking and investments in the USA work.
    6. How taxes work and how your state, federal and local governments spend their taxes.
    7. Your legal obligations as a citizen of the USA. Your legal rights as a citizen of the USA.
    8. How to lose weight (eat less).
    9. How politics works in America.
