From today’s Frogblog
Metiria today announced $13 million of Government funding for environmental education in schools – a budget initiative secured through the Green Party’s co-operation agreement with Labour. It’s really exciting news; today’s children, after all, will be the lawmakers when the proverbial really hits the fan on climate change, peak oil, and environmental degradation and all the other lovely presents we’ve prepared for them.
We need education for sustainability to equip them to deal with these issues better than the current generation have – but of course it’s not too late to reverse some of these trends before our children have to deal with them.
New Zeal Kids can’t make up their own minds you see. They can’t read, write or use the Internet, so they need to be taught how to think like a Green.
They will course be given equal time on free market solutions to environmental problems?
The fact that the Greens think it is laudable to spend taxpayers money on indoctrinating children, demonstrates what little closet totalitarians they actually are.
