Obama's Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, pledged to turn America's school children into good enviro zombies at an appearance at a Virginia high school earlier in the month and he intends to use federal funds to do it.
Right now, in the second decade of the 21st century, preparing our children to be good environmental citizens is some of the most important work any of us can do. Its work that will serve future generations--and quite literally sustain our world, Duncan said at the Education Departments "Sustainability Education Summit: Citizenship and Pathways for a Green Economy."Duncan says that this enviro indoctrination effort, the "Blueprint for Reform," will be funded by $265 million allocated by Obama for his 2011 budget...
"This weeks sustainability summit represents the first time that the Department is taking a taking a leadership role in the work of educating the next generation of green citizens and preparing them to contribute to the workforce through green jobs, said Duncan. President Obama has made clean, renewable energy a priority because, as he says, its the best way to 'truly transform our economy, to protect our security, and save our planet."

I don’t have any issues with kids learning to recycle,to not litter and how about respecting nature along the lines of not starting a forest fire by being careful. The problem isn’t really here any longer anyway. Its the developing nations such as China.
oH FOR GOD’S SAKE!
cAN’T YOU TEACH them to talk english ( and that includes the eubonics generation!) ..add and subtract change...know where Iowa or Russia is on a map!
Reading, writing arithmetic!!
Shut down the Department of Education NOW! Waste of frakin money for starters.....indoctrination central of the libtard agenda second.... =.=
Duncan the Pervert OUT in 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, but will they be able to read and count passed 20?
Yes teach the basics required to move ahead in school, teach them to think at home. They will go far from there!
OOps...I meant 2012!!! (Speed Dreaming I guess....)
I can’t wait until they teach them to start informing on their parents.
Enviro Scouts bookmark.
Josef Goebbels would be proud.
“I cant wait until they teach them to start informing on their parents.”
Yep, that’s the plan, alright.
It is disgusting how the left destroys the meaning of words for future use.....
....."Reform" is now a bad word since their use of "reform" really means destruction.
Health Care "Reform" is one glaring example, now this "Blueprint for Reform". I am sure there are others...
I have a problem with the existence of a federal dept of education. It has spent tens of billions of dollars with nothing to show for it.
"I dont have any issues with kids learning to recycle,to not litter and how about respecting nature along the lines of not starting a forest fire by being careful."Too bad that is the least of the indoctrination they will be teaching. They will also be teaching that capitalism is bad, the USA is evil, and their parents are bad people. THAT is what they are already teaching and this money will make that worse.
