Vestal: Own Private Idaho Hurts Kids

The Coeur d’Alene School Board has made it clear. The kids whose educations are under their charge do not reside in the world. They are not global citizens. They live in Idaho, and Idaho only. The board, earlier this week, made its second stand against the grave threat of internationalist, one-world-order education, banishing a program that emphasized multiculturalism, global citizenship and awareness of other places. The program also has a suspiciously British spelling – the Primary Years Programme – which is a tipoff that it’s a secret arm of the United Nations and Agenda 21, the plan for global domination through land-use zoning. Is being a global citizen such a bad thing? Trustee Ann Seddon said it can be. “A global citizen would then be a member of the world, owes allegiance to it and is entitled to the international rights of the U.N.,” Seddon said, according to S-R coverage of Monday night’s school board meeting. Holy cow. Allegiance to the world. Nations united. The mark of the beast. Someone had to step in, obviously, and protect Coeur d’Alene’s tender youth/Shawn Vestal, SR. More here.

Question: How do you react when you hear individuals warn that a United Nations philosophy is taking over our education system and land-use planning?
