Notley NDP targeting kids with $600K for “scientifically based” climate change education

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

The Alberta government is tossing around more taxpayer cash to sell their bad ideas. This time, it’s $600,000 for “scientifically based” climate change education in the classroom.

The government has already blown through $9M to annoy adult Albertans with endless Climate Leadership ads in a desperate and futile attempt to sell their carbon tax, and it hasn’t worked.

Go figure. Two thirds of Albertans still don’t want the NDP tax on everything.

Now the government has a new plan. They’re by-passing the grown-ups to sell their carbon tax and scare monger to a more receptive and captive audience: our children at school.

This isn't $600K to fund science education. Who could be against science education?

This is the opposite. It’s ideology education.

It’s $600,000 to create future NDP voters in spite of the wishes of Alberta parents.

Climate change = weather.!!.
Global warming = BS and ideology..!!
I woke up this morning and it was
-35 like usual on a crisp and clear and very cold morning in central Alberta.
Does anyone ever notice how the term “chinook” is never used anymore while reporting the weather.?
A 150 year cross-sectional examination of the weather is a very poor profiling slice of a planet that is many billions of years old.!!

I wish there was a criminal charge for gov’t that attacks our children with pseudo truths. Parents, be the tiger, and go after them for polluting young minds. Be stubborn, fight for the welfare of your kids. Please, we need you to just get outraged for a few days.

Public schools do more brain washing than educating. Next gen in ON will not be able to read a balance sheet, witness declining math scores. Tutored a few & boy do they need help.

This is just financial irresponsibility on so many levels. Albertans are hurting, this province is a mess financially & wasting money on nonsensical propaganda is not acceptable. Sheila, I hope you start a petition against this.

AL PETERSON, “My then girlfriend was working on her B.Ed degree at the U of C in the early to mid 1980’s. In one of her classes she took notes that said, “change society through the schools”. This social excrement has been working its way through the system for some time. The frog is thoroughly boiled”.
While a lot of attention has been focused on the human sexuality aspects of the socialist NDP government’s thrust in education, in general, that thrust is to create a future generation of activists, political activists, basically dictating public policy from the class room. That political agenda is manifest as part of the NDPs curriculum rewrite.
According to one teacher in a promotional video for the Alberta NDP government’s new survey on its curriculum rewrite:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7s1RLuX5ThE&feature=youtu.be&channel=InspiringEducation
The education system’s thrust isn’t for students to acquire knowledge, but, rather, is to create students “who are agents of change to create the globe that they want to be a part of”, that is, as already taught by the U of C’s Department of Education in the 1980s to “change society through the schools”. That teacher, Terry Godwaldt, Queen Elizabeth High school in Edmonton, not surprisingly leads something called the Centre for Global Education. Queen Elizabeth High school in Edmonton, where Godwaldt ‘teaches’, has been designated a UNESCO school.
The basic purpose of UNESCO was made crystal clear by its first Directory-General, Sir Julian Huxley, when he said: “Specifically, in its educational program it [UNESCO] can stress the ultimate need for world political unity and familiarize all peoples with the implications of the transfer of full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization … political unification in some sort of world government will be required.” [Sir Julian Huxley, UNESCO: Its Purpose and Philosophy, 1947, p. 13]
A priority in a global education curriculum is to guide children away from the teaching they receive in the home, preparing children for a world organization.

Debrief your children daily and counter everything they are being taught by these communist lizards. And let them know that the government is teaching them lies, to control their thoughts and behaviour. I wonder how long it will be before they start taking our children from us, for teaching them the truth. Personally, I would keep my kids at home if I had the opportunity. I think like minded parents need to get together and home school their children and focus on the basics. They aren’t being taught the skills needed to survive. They are being taught to destroy humanity by limiting their potential.

Once again the Notley gov’t goes & does something Albertans vehemently appose.Well parents & grandparents I guess it’s up to us to reeducate our kids with what is & what is not truth.

Maybe the $600 000 is to integrate the environmental propaganda into the curriculum of the madrasahs our public schools are becoming. I don’t think there are suras addressing the environment in the curriculum document of the madrasahs, so the need. Except that same curriculum document is considered perfect as is, so will our new public madrasahs even accept integration of environmental topics? Environment will go the way of racial, gay and women’s rights in a madrasah.

Thank you Sheila

“Two thirds of Albertans still don’t want the NDP tax on everything.” The sane population of Alberta, and believe me that is still the majority, don’t want the NDP period.

Have to wonder how long before homeschooling is regulated to the point of unfeasibility or outlawed altogether.

Public schools are the indoctrination centres for the progressive left. No deviation from the progressive narrative is permitted. Children who are informed enough to have independent views on “climate change” or “multiculturalism” or refugee issues is afraid to speak for fear of being branded a “denier”, a racist or an islamaphobe.

“Lock them up” seems an appropriate response to the NDP liars and deceivers. Shame on Rachel and her classless clowns!

It wouldn’t be extra cash to explain to the kids that the scientist at NOAA and IPCC lied and that Climate Change is a money scam, now would it? Much like explaining the true mystery about the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy.

Climate change crisis fear mongering is not based in science so this is open soviet style indoctrination in a political opinion – NOT SCIENCE.
commented 2017-02-07 20:57:45 -0500
About as much science as in religion.
commented 2017-02-07 20:05:51 -0500
This has nothing to do with “science” this is pure indoctrination.

Notley needs to be arreted for fraud. Even with the latest news about the fraudulent climate change numbers, she still wants to extort more money from Albertan’s? Of course she has known all along that these figures were rigged by highly paid Climateoiogists, working for the UN. Carbon Tax is just a set up to pay for the Muslim Welfare Cheques.

NO story needed the pic of the 3 socialist air heads is all that was needed.

Forgot to mention, Oct. 2017, is the midterm election…I don’t think I have ever pointed that puppy out before :)

Ask hard questions of your candidates for school board…AND VOTE! This is how our ed system has crashed…the left controls the Boards.

I am not sure why an additional $600 000 is needed to propagandize global warming to the students. The curriculum is already biased that way, and teachers are trained that way. Check your kids or grand-kids math problems, science ‘labs’ based on pre-determined data, social studies topics. I think English is partially free of the propaganda, curriculum and resource wise, because there are not the novels out there yet, but there are the folk songs used as poems, ‘meaningful’ plays, and brainwashed teachers. Study the bias of the way questions in exams or projects of all subjects are worded. And the fact that the alternative view is not to be entertained.

So the question is, exactly why is Phillips wasting $600 000 of Environmental Department money for socialist science on an education system that is already politicized that way? Eggen has the job to to politicize curriculum, not the Environment Minister, and has already done his job of politicizing the curriculum.

What is Phillips wasting the money on, maybe the carbon extortion created more money than expected in January, so a surplus to waste.

Meanwhile, it is rumoured a former teacher and principal lurks somewhere as a Sr. cabinet minister in a portfolio intimately related to this. Hence should be able to make comment from both the educational and environmental aspects. However, February 2 was bright and sunny in our neck of the Peace, so the invisible energy minister saw her shadow and ducked back under her desk.

SHEILA , keep us apprised of every step of this ideology "education "

Parents and grand parents , need I tell you what to do !!

Notley has been after our kids for much longer than this. They want to do an education overhaul. They want men in the little girl’s rooms. They want to assign school districts at birth. They want school board to punish children for what they do at home. They want to keep secrets from parents. They want to destroy the children’s identities. They want to sexualize per-pubescent children. They want to declare was is ethical and moral. This 600k on climate change is smoke and mirrors.
commented 2017-02-07 17:49:19 -0500
Hey Nutley the jig is up. The whistle blowers for NOAA have come forward and exposed your climate change shell game. Up yours and dont try to teach your lies to our children. This is a new low. Stay away from our kids. You’ve seen nothing yet the back lash from this will be very hostile.Your are getting between moma bear and her cubs.

Sheila, I think that the words " … in spite of the wishes of Alberta parents." are perfectly chosen.
