Green Brainwashing Now a High School Graduation Requirement in Maryland

So much for the imaginary wall between Church and State progressives revered until recently. Hyper-liberal Maryland, ranked as having the least personal freedom in the union, will no longer allow anyone to graduate from high school who hasn’t been deemed sufficiently indoctrinated in the cult of Envirofascism, as Curriculum Matters announced yesterday:

Today’s vote by the Maryland board of education requires that students get a “comprehensive, multi-disciplinary environmental education” before receiving a diploma. Districts will have to develop plans for coursework that meets state standards in environmental literacy and have their plans approved by the state superintendent of schools. They will also have to develop ways to assess students’ mastery of the material in order to determine if they are eligible for graduation.

Presumably this means that if you won’t pretend capitalism makes it be too warm out for the polar bears, you don’t get your diploma.

The action today follows a decision by the board last summer to require that students get a bigger dose of environmental literacy than they had been getting in typical science classes. There was some confusion, however, about whether that action actually made environmental literacy a graduation requirement. Today’s vote was intended to clear up that confusion and make the requirement official.

Socialist and environmentalist Adolf Hitler may have provided the inspiration:

“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”

Of course public school students can still feel free to graduate without being able to read, write, or do simple math.
