School’s Out – The Government’s Brainwashing Begins Again In September Unless It Is Stopped!

“Our schools have become a place for indoctrinating children to blindly believe and advocate the policies of government agencies that include the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.”

“Now that their children are out of school for the summer, parents have the opportunity to find out what they have been taught about the environment and the nation’s wildlife,” says Tom DeWeese, president of the American Policy Center, an activist think tank headquartered in Herndon, Virginia. “What they will discover is that these two agencies have turned schools into places where they are educating children to become activists to further their policies. Other agencies are involving children in the nation’s drug culture.”

Since 1990, the EPA has maintained an Office of Environmental Education that promulgates programs designed to “reflect EPA policy on the topics explored.” Millions are spent annually by this office, often in the form of grants to environmental organizations whose materials are published and distributed with public dollars. Parents should keep this in mind as they fill up the gas tanks of their vehicles to take their children on vacation trips this summer because EPA Clean Air mandates are partially responsible for the highest prices of gasoline in modern memory,” says DeWeese.

In a similar fashion, the Fish and Wildlife Service has distributed an program called “Wild about Life: An Instructional Program about Biodiversity for Middle and High School Students” designed to turn them into activists using lobbying, the mass media and other “community change agents” to advocate FWS programs that have come under sharp criticism. Among these programs are those devoted to introducing predatory animals into areas where they threaten livestock as well as the lives of Americans, many of whom will be on vacation this summer, camping and enjoying the outdoors.

“This ever expanding intrusion of government agencies into the school systems of our nation runs counter to the independence of those systems and the time they have to teach the basic courses that will prepare children for higher education or vocations. Worse still, is the Department of Education’s programs to “identify” children for the prescribing of mind-altering drugs such as Ritalin, Luvoc and Prozac, “literally introducing millions of young people to the drug culture that encourages dependence on these and other drugs on a daily basis.”
