Are school children being taught more science or politics when it comes to their environmental education? Well according to former Southern California public school teacher Ari Kaufman, sadly it seems to be more of the latter than the former. Comments Kaufman: “As a public school teacher, I have witnessed everything from school plays which dramatize how mankind is destroying the earth, to field trips to beaches designed to politicize children into becoming environmental activists. Essentially these agenda-driven efforts by environmental groups use scare tactics to implore kids to chastise their parents for destroying the earth. It was very troubling to see my students so visibly upset about erroneous claims from the likes of preachy college students and yoga instructors.”
