Venezuela, like America, Is Using K-12 Classrooms to Convert Kids to Socialism
It’s not just happening in America.
Leftists in lots of nations have figured out a way to get a jump on their political opponents – by taking their cause to K-12 classrooms and brainwashing children into becoming socialists well before they are old enough to vote or participate in government.
From the Chicago Tribune:
Venezuela’s government has published dozens of new textbooks that glorify (the) late President Hugo Chavez and belittle his adversaries, infuriating opposition critics who call them part of a campaign to indoctrinate school children.
If this sounds outrageous, it’s really pretty common. Right here in America, teacher colleges typically train prospective educators to take a “social justice” agenda into the classroom and find ways to make the socialist message part of their everyday lessons. Teachers unions have also been encouraging this movement.
One might expect classrooms to be politically-free, or at least places where all sides of all issues would be fairly presented and discussed. But that sort of traditional approach to does not win converts to the cause of destroying American capitalism.
