Skip to comments.Schools now tasked with creating 'green' citizens

Common Core is not a benign set of federals standards meant to make your children smarter, warns an educator who says it looks more like an indoctrination program to push students toward green jobs for a green economy.
Alex Newman, coauthor of Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians Are Using Government Schools to Destroy Americas Children, pointed to speeches by Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
He gave one to UNESCO in 2012, for example, and he bragged that he was using these standards and our government schools to create green citizens to take their place in the green world order with their green jobs, Newman said in an interview on the One America News Networks On Point with Tomi Lahren.

Yes, “green” citizens fully versed in the homosexual agenda.
When this Gore Green program first started, I remember Hillary saying that this was a program to recruit the youth vote. The whole thing has been phony from the beginning.
Hmmm. Wonder how soon (if not already) kids will be eval’d on their “level of green-ness”. It’s already been shoved down their throats that a lot places they must have “community service” time in order to graduate. I seem to remember that folks were “sentenced” to community service for minor offenses. It’s the old “You’re required to volunteer.” HUH? Kind of like the United Way drive they used to push at work. You don’t have to contribute but we’ll do an automatic deduction for you. Check box for govt contractors? :>}
LOL! Reminds me of those ‘30’s B/W movies about industrialization and everybody hard at work in their grey uniforms with the evil overseer constantly observing.
The Lear jet leftists expect to form the core of the global Green Inner Party. There they will continue to enjoy the finest foods and most advanced gadgets the world has to offer while deciding your fate for you.
If you work very hard and show them your unwavering loyalty you may be permitted to join the global Green Outer Party. You will be allowed occasional servings of meat - and air conditioning on a rationed basis.
The rest of us will eat insects and swelter for the good of the planet.
You’re expected to have “Community Service” on your application for college.
The whole thing has been phony from the beginning.
Liberals are very creative at sloganeering and fear mongering to justify more government programs to solve “problems” and expand the state’s control over people. That is their modus operandi and they are, unfortunately, very good at it. It has worked like a charm for them. They are now running the country into the ground.
The Republicans control congress but you would never know it. They are complicit by doing virtually nothing to stop the advance of radical liberalism. Just saying.
With all the PC nonsense going on in schools, when is there time for the three R’s?
Kids in China, Korea, and India work tirelessly to excel in math and science. And to become fluent in at least one other language.
CC sounds quite diabolical to me.
Um... They have been doing this since the 70’s
I can remember the school year it happened. When all the text books suddenly became filled with environmental quackery. I was in 6th grade and the year was 1979.
Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS.
This is why “schools” are now totally worthless. Kids don’t go there to learn. They go there to be programmed by the “government”.
Green is the new red. It is pretty obvious what the agenda is.
Mm mm you’re wrong. No fires allowed. They throw crap in the air.
To understand “green jobs” we need to understand the “broken window” story of economists Bastiat and Hazlitt.
(Please someone update that story with a modern equivalent.)
The left really believes that by breaking a window, breaking the coal plants, breaking the carbon burners the government can create new green jobs.
