I don’t know. But I’m curious.

A few days ago, I received an email announcing what should be a booster shot for our children in math and science education. The program is called “Connect a Million Minds” (CAMM).

Here is an excerpt from CAMM website:

On November 17 at 12pm ET, join host former Vice President Al Gore, inventor Dean Kamen, astronaut Sally Ride and young people from around the world for an interactive discussion exploring youth attitudes toward math and science education.

Immediately after seeing Al Gore’s name, my inner conspiracy theorist surfaced and asked a few questions:

Is Al Gore the best they could do for a moderator? Really?

Is this another Global Warming / Climate Change indoctrination attempt?

If not, why front load the panel with known Climate Change theorists Kaman and Gore?

I don’t want to get overly excited about this. I actually like the idea of pushing kids to excellence in any field of endeavor, especially math, science and technology.

My concern is the hijacking of what could be a good program by the wacko environ-mentalists who could use the opportunity to push an an agenda that has been proven to be at best flawed science and at worst outright lies. Is that what we want our children to learn? If the math doesn’t fit the hypothesis, make up the numbers that will support your theory?

I’ll stop before I go too far here, I’m not pointing the finger of accusation just yet. I’m merely asking for feedback from teachers.

Are you aware of the program?

Is your school participating?

What are your thoughts?

Bueller? Bueller?

    This is a good example of why education needs to be local.

      Hi Trestin. Agreed. Not sure if any schools are participating. Still waiting on feedback. Will be updating.

    Rolls eyes…

    My daughter would looooove this… not

    I don’t think they’re doing that here in Vegas but the project based learning is ‘global warming’ for the HS I teach at. I may have to subvert a few kids on that one.

    Seriously…

      Howdy Vegas Art Guy, Thanks for the feedback. I put nothing past these people anymore. The progressive horse is at full gallop and we need to pull back the reins. HARD. Subvert as many as you can. Every little bit helps.

      Global Warming in Vegas? Really? How can you tell? lol
      Have a great weekend!

    hi Robot! If I had kids, I wouldn’t let them watch this propaganda fest. So happy I don’t, the way things are going.
    I hope you have a fun weekend, and thanks for your nice note.

      Hey Bunni, Same here. I would worry myself to death if I did. I still worry about my nieces and nephews and their children though.
      Thanks for stopping in!

    My nephews attend a church-based private school in a supposedly Conservative area of the south, so one would assume that they are at least somewhat protected form the Leftist brainwashing of our educational establishment, but it seems not. They still get exposed to this eco-worship greenie-cult stuff. Why? Because we have let this go on so long that it is impossible for the school to find a science textbook that is not awash in this pseudoscientific nonsense and social engineering, there just aren’t any available. If I ever have kids of my own, not only does it seem that I am going to have to homeschool them, but it appears that I am going to have to write all of their textbooks myself also. I had better get started.
