A Matter Of Opinion

Indoctrination

Signe Wilkinson has an interesting cartoon today. Students who missed out on the “Obama indoctrination” missed out on other forms, such as the Pledge of Allegiance. What other forms of indoctrination did you witness at schools? Which ones are there now? Outside of school, what government-sponsored indoctrinations are there?

Let’s make a list, starting with 4-H and Character Counts. Seems to me that the teaching of Manifest Destiny in history or social studies was another form of indoctrination. Sure helps to rationalize what happened when you can say it was divinely ordained.

What’s on your list? Doesn’t have to be something you think is particularly harmful, just something that fits the definition.
