Schools told it's no longer necessary to teach right from wrong (David Charter, 7/31/06, Times of London)

SCHOOLS would no longer be required to teach children the difference between right and wrong under plans to revise the core aims of the National Curriculum.

Instead, under a new wording that reflects a world of relative rather than absolute values, teachers would be asked to encourage pupils to develop “secure values and beliefs”.

The draft also purges references to promoting leadership skills and deletes the requirement to teach children about Britain’s cultural heritage.

Ministers have asked for the curriculum’s aims to be slimmed down to give schools more flexibility in the way they teach pupils aged 11 to 14.

...when you're doing such a good job destroying your own culture.

At first glance, this seems like another story about the decline of education, when, in fact, it is merely another indicator of how corrupted Western culture has become.

Teaching right and wrong is the job of the family, and the religion (or value system) to which they subscribe.

The fact that the parental class has already ceded this "teaching" to a class of socialist taxeaters who practice and indoctrinate kids in "secular humanism" shows how far gone we really are.

If you schools are teaching "right from wrong," you've already lost the culture.


For those of you who are thinking, "Yeah, but that's Britain." Think Again.

Our awful schools have been using "values clarification," as the centerpiece of their vile "Character Counts" and "Character Education" programs for the last 10 years.

They've been teaching your kids that there is no "right and wrong" (void where politically correct dogma applies) for over a decade, and called it "character education."

Of course, having believed that your high taxes bought you those high (and probably gamed) test scores, you may have taken the time to notice.

It's called the "Columbine Curriculum," and it's mandated in just about every school.

But go ahead and think that 2 hours of church will trump 5 days a week, 180 days a year of indoctrination.

1) Bruno is right about the indoctrination, which is why we must crush the infamous thing that public education has become.

2) The joke is on the schools in the end, for when the dear tykes are cut loose from all sense of right and wrong, they see nothing wrong in neglecting their own education and disrupting that of others.
