'A Ph.D in education is "a valid marker" of left wing ideology in education these days. Anyone wishing to educate children rather than indoctrinate them and kibosh their chances in life should steer clear of any state validated educational qualification as the left has a stranglehold on content and delivery.'

Terrorise the children, control the adults: - a behavioural change strategy at work



By those who want to reduce the levels of a trace gas vital for plantlife.

Why?  Superficially, because they believe that computer models designed to show a big effect of CO2 actually mean that CO2 has a big effect.

But deep down, it seems more likely that they just hate humanity.  Weird, or what?

One day, teachers will refuse to teach the junk 'science' of CO2 alarmism, and the junk geography, sociology,  and politics that drive it.  They will react with anger when 'sensitise the children', and 'behavioural change', and 'sustainable biodiversity', and 'carbon footprint', and all the other apparatus of indoctrination is pushed at them to push in their classes.

I have my doubts about your last paragraph. They all seem too concerned with keeping their jobs and pensions to "rock the boat". I fear the days (that you and I remember) of independently minded teachers who spoke their own minds are long gone.

I hope I'm wrong, but.....
