Alberta NDP curriculum changes: “Social studies” becomes SJW training course

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

The NDP are making further changes to Alberta’s education curriculum. In addition to issuing Guidelines for Best Practices to create safe learning spaces for LGBTQ kids, they’ve now drafted changes for social studies and they’re quite revealing.

In a modern day version of book burning, the Alberta government are essentially wiping away history, except in the case of First Nations, Metis, Inuit and Francophone history of course.

Instead of teaching social studies, they’re turning the curriculum into more of a training course for social justice warriors aimed at kids from kindergarten all the way to the twelfth grade.

In studying the draft documents, the mandate appears to be to produce activists. They issue directives for taking action to effect change and also ask kids questions like, “How and why should individuals and groups advocate for their rights and the rights of others”?

Another unsurprising omission from the social studies curriculum is the millions of lives lost due to communism.

Notley does love her Che Guevara watch and NDP MLA Rod Loyola is Hugo Chavez’s biggest fan. It doesn’t seem to matter that the Marxist ideology espoused by both these men is responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths.

But the left don’t like to talk about that. As far as they’re concerned, these men are revolutionary heroes.

The Alberta NDP are doing their part to hide the dangers of this toxic ideology by teaching it to kids in a way that re-words the ideals, and now they're perpetuating that view in the social studies curriculum.

In Canada, it’s taxpayers that foot the bill to churn out little Marxists.

The NDP claim to fight for equality, but their communist heroes did anything but that and weren't really fans of diversity so they'll just erase that part of communism's history. 

If diversity is our strength though, as they like to say, shouldn’t that also apply to a diverse education? I guess that’s different.

If the kids learn in school how to be activists, then they will be better prepared for university.

I agree, Louise. But obviously Canadians haven’t suffered deeply enough or long enough because they keep voting these shallow lefties in.

This is certainly extended personal pain, Allan. Ndp should never exist but here it is, destroying the lives of our children. They already have SJW components in Social studies, I read the previous curriculum. Teachers have become militant union workers and force their will on us every 2-4 years. We cannot counter this attack on the minds of our children without getting rid of this party and insisting on adjustments to the education laws that prohibit party sensitive material. It used to be a rule, years back, it can be done. Ndp started out as a communist party, look it up. They have slightly evolved but they won’t rest until us drones have to beg for permission to buy a new fridge or permission to buy a car. Ndp has to go and be gone forever if we truly want freedom.

The new parties won’t either, Harvey. Canadians like their PM’s stupid. If a real top notch party was formed it would never get elected or if it was on the cusp of doing so the addle-headed party members would allow it to be infiltrated. Until Canadians wake up and stop drinking the CBC kool-aid, we’re screwed. Start praying for total economic collapse. We only learn from extended personal pain.

We must start a party that will be more Canadian and quicker to act. Neither of the old line parties ever seem to do any good.

“… To scream “Commie, Commie, Commie” at the NDP is also wrong. They are not communists. They are not Marxists…” I beg to disagree, there is no doubt, based on the facts, that the NDP are in fact COMMUNISTS!

https://nosnowinmoscow.wordpress.com/2015/03/02/new-democratic-party-of-canada-ndp-exposed-as-communists-guest-video-by-seeing-red-yet/

Or Google: “communist ties to the NDP” – and see all the many facts!
I’m still looking for a list of all the NDP MPs who are and were card carrying members of Communist (or Socialist) International…
By stating an obvious falsehood about the NDP, you appear to be acting as an apologist for the Commie NDP!? Correct me if I’m wrong.
You do realize Communism, Marxism, Socialism and liberalism are all bad things, right?

I agree with Allan Peterson on this William Kay.

Sorry, William, I have to disagree with you on this one. The NDP are marxists, but some of them may not realize it since the Rules for Radicals calls for lying about who you really are. Watch the video I posted earlier if you haven’t already.

The indoctrination of children into environmentalism and its twin “the gay agenda” is in deed a sinister trend. However, it is happening across the western world not just in Notley’s Alberta so we have to broaden our perspective. Furthermore, resistance to this social engineering is hampered by trying to force reality into a rigid antiquated political binary system. When Block Bloc anarchist types show up at a Trump rally shouting “Nazi, Nazi, Nazi” it is not just unfair it is nonsense because the vast majority of Trump supporters are not Nazis. To scream “Commie, Commie, Commie” at the NDP is also wrong. They are not communists. They are not Marxists. They self-define as social-democrats but are better described as “corporatist” or social-fascist. They are not a “left-wing” party and never have been.

Those who forget\ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

Social Studies has always been a training course for SJW’s. That is why it largely replaced courses in History and Civics. And, yes, Gerry it was the result of the activists of that day reading Saul Alinsky.

When my wife was at the U of C in the mid 80’s doing her Education degree she had written in her class notes, “Change society through the schools”. So this has been long time project of the Left. We are seeing the full flower of the agenda today.

For those unfamiliar with Saul Alinsky and Critical Theory. Fairly long at 1:25 but very informative:

This nut bar must be reading Saul Alinskys book Rules for Radicals.

The plan of the lefties is to turn schools and universities into indoctrination camps, it’s a long term plan but they have done a good job at it. Once the NDP is turfed next election this has to be changed. Their thoughts are an indoctrinated youth will be easier for them to brainwash when they are adults.

The generations are getting dumbed down. It is like Idiocracy.

Since she knows the NDP will be wiped out in the next election, Notley is going forward with her scorched earth policies of destroying the resource economy, maximizing unionization, approving long-term generous union contracts, hellish carbon taxation, and now, social engineering in schools to produce a population of brainwashed, uneducated Marxist snowflakes who will graduate and become activists (because their education taught them nothing else).

“Nanny Notley” – isn’t she childless?! The Marxists of Alberta have no business trying to replace the family…
SJW training doesn’t belong in the educational system.

The degenerate left grooming our young for exploitation by pedos, and sundry other pervs.

Whatever happened to reading, ‘riting ’n’ ’rithmetic? While the left is fine with Muslims not assimilating, they seek to assimilate our children in their ideology… resistance is futile… especially if you can get rid of homeschooling!
