Embedding Social Agendas Into Teaching

Hat tip The College Fix

Recently, UC Irvine has drawn public criticism for a newly-instituted program by which climate change material would be incorporated into courses that have nothing to do with the issue. When I (an ESL teacher at UCI) inquired about it, I was informed that climate change could easily be embedded into an English class. (I declined to pursue the program.)

So it is at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where a Spanish teacher has inserted his own political agenda into his classes. This, however, goes much further.

Note to Mr Brown: Teach Spanish like I teach English. You have no right to shove your personal beliefs down the throats of your students, explicitly or implicitly. It is unprofessional, and it is wrong.

In Saul Alinsky's eight rules to create a "social state" he states: 6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
Is this what is going on at UCI, with its Climate Change agenda? I do think so.

Squid and Gary want to take control of education so that anything true that they find politically inconvenient can't be taught. And Squid has the nerve to complain about Saul Alinsky. Given Squid's previous track record in making allegations about President Obama, I'll take anything he says Alinsky said with a large grain of salt.

Climate change agenda? You mean they're teaching empirical facts about weather, climate, geology, chemistry, and haven't asked you if it is politically correct to let students know the truth?

Obama is the most corrupt president that has taken office. I do not have to put forth the truth here, because it has already been presented. The Left, in the form of the Media, the Hollywood types, billionaires like Soros and the great uninformed support Obama. Many support Obama because of the free phones ABT cards, welfare without work and the rest of the free stuff. As far as Climate change, it has been happening to the earth for 3 billion years and will continue to do so. It is the anthropomorphic cause of climate change that is false. Those promoters of the climate change, like Leonardo DeCaprio, who crafts his screed on the sixth largest yacht in the world (which costs $16,438 a day). He also, uses private jets to fly everywhere at enormous carbon costs. As far as Leo's scientific knowledge, he must have got it from his GED earned after he dropped out of High School in the third year.
Here is the latest on the Climate Change scam put forth by the folks at NOAA and their do-do data manipulation:

Squid... assumes facts not in evidence. And you have the nerve to deny that you need to present facts. You remind me of a character in the old Aleksandria days who styled himself "Truth Excavator." Whenever his assertions were challenged, he responded "The evidence is out there." Try justifying a master's thesis by saying you don't need footnotes because the facts are documented all over the campus library.
