Green education: Maryland requires ‘environmental literacy’ to graduate from high school

Maryland is the first state in the country to impose a new requirement to graduate from high school — something called environmental literacy.

But what is that? That is the question State Senator J. B. Jennings is asking.

“What kind of education is it going to be?” he asks. “Is it going to be fact-based? Or is it going to be theory-based, which is usually politically, theory driven. And you can think, it’s going to be about global warming or climate change.”

    Environmental literacy? Good God, next thing you’ll be telling me is that we want scientific literacy. Shameful.

    • Offensive Bias

      Wow genious…you really bat that one out of the park!

      However science and logic are two subjects you failed. To make up for those failures you had to graduate from an indoctrinating class of “liberalism”.

    Next up, students must under go indoctrination for Obamacare in order to graduate.

    We are entering a new level of indoctrination and purification of thought in schools. What do you think the expected outcome of the environment propaganda will be–pro-climate change hysteria; or an honest balance of both sides of the debate such that some students could conclude that the whole thing is junk science–and still pass?

    If you google Michael Crichton on environmentalism as religion or Czech President Vaclav Klaus on global warming as a religion, I think it will give many people a more accurate perspective on the issue. Once you realize that AGW/Climate Change has become a religion with a rigid catechism that does not tolerate heretics (honest scientists) nor blasphemy (proper scientific method, valid data, honest discussion), then you will know better how to deal with the evangelical EPA in its recreation of the Spanish Inquisition (which was also noted for its intolerance of science). We need to recognize the corrupt high priests (AlGore as an awkward Elmer Gantry & Jeff Immelt come to mind) that proselytize their fraudulent religious cult in order to personally enrich themselves off of the Carbon Tax collection plate, and take them to task for their thefts from the alms box. Most importantly we need to address this religion and the government imposition of this religion via the Establishment Clause of the Constitution. Government establishment and imposition of this religion through the machinations of the EPA should be recognized for what it is and prohibited as the obvious violation of the Constitution that it is. AS for Maryland, I doubt that they will succeed in imposing this religious instruction within the public school system without a very intense fight all the way to the SCOTUS.

    When these schools turn out illiterate students, the same fascist left that is pushing this disgusting propaganda will blame it on a lack of funding and demand more money.

    The radical Marxists are completely out of control.

    If these Nazis want to bring up their own kids to be illiterate, sheep propagandists for the state, that’s their right. But you filthy rats keep your greasy, despicable Marxist fingers off of my children.

    We can’t teach them how to read, but by God we can teach them how to become Greenpeace fodder!

    It’s glaring but really how is it that different from sex ed or social studies? Both of those are open season liberal indoctrination areas already.

    There is no hope in changing them until parents win the right to choose alternatives with tax payer aid going to students. In short, vouchers.

      Amen.
