Oregonís First Environmental Literacy Plan Completed
BusinessWire ^ | Oct 7, 2010 | Unknown

Posted on 10/29/2010 8:39:12 AM PDT by epithermal

The plan articulates that environmentally literate students, upon graduation, will demonstrate proficiency in each of the following areas:

* Understand the physical and biological world and our interdependent relationship with it * Understand and apply systems thinking concepts and tools * Understand one’s relationship to the local, regional, national and global community * Investigate options for, plan and create a sustainable future * Understand and achieve personal and civic responsibility

Oregon’s Environmental Literacy Plan will be submitted to the Oregon legislature and considered for full adoption by the State Board of Education later this year. To implement the plan, Oregon will be eligible to receive up to $2 million of pending federal funds set forth in No Child Left Inside legislation included in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

We don’t live in Oregon, but this is yet another reason to homeschool, as we do.

Where’s the requirement that students will be taught to celebrate diversity? Or measure their carbon footprint? Or measure others carbon footprints? Or the list of approved cars such as the Toyota Prius? Or the celebration of the condom? There’s so much missing here.

Yeah. Here’s an idea you bunch of ivory-tower-liberal-dopes:

How about you teach your students basic science and the concept of thinking for themselves, and let them decide how to proceed?

I don't think this is brainwashing at all, IF they stick to what is declared here, AND they put "* Understand and achieve personal and civic responsibility" as the first priority, not an afterthought.

Comment #3 has it right, "they" declare one thing but really impose another. This is standard MO for the LEFT - say the right things, then spin the operation to an undeclared furtive agenda. Ala corrupt Politics, ala Barack Obama; talk change, change, change, but never reveal what is intended.

Legitimate evaluation is not based on what one says, but rather what one does, and how one performs. Talk is cheap .

Geez, they sling edu-slang and hope it buys them a turn on the gub’mint teat. What a crock of bullscat.

All of these lofty goals are already supposedly met in earth science, biology, world history, US History and Government.

I read it. It is (100%) meaningless babble.

The truth is nowhere in the document, but the predictable outcome is the chillruns will be taught private sector economic activity related to "natural resources" is bad for the environment and/or is "unsustainable".

And the chillruns will be expected to believe it in order to graduate.
