This time it’s an attempt to brainwash them about the health care “reform” legislation that was just rammed through Congress.
Saw the story on Gateway Pundit. Here’s the deal, PBS has lesson plans associated with PBS NewsHour. This one is the “National Discussion and Debate Series: Health Care“. They claim it has “critical analysis” but I really didn’t see anything that fairly or accurately portrayed any of the criticisms of the “reform”. What I did see* was a reference to Yes! Magazine as the source for health care information and statistics. It says it”supports people’s active engagement in building a just and sustainable world” and that “we need deep change if we are to avoid the breakdown of society and the natural world.” Not exactly a nonbiased source if you ask me.
Anyway, check it out for yourself and hope it’s not being taught in your child’s 9-12th grade social studies class. Or if it is, help your child find some other, more appropriate, documents to bring to the debate. Everyone should be enlightened about the true facts about the fantastic health care we (currently) have in this country and not be subjected only to one side’s view of things.
*Ugh, among many other things. The more I look at it, the worse it gets. Look at it for yourself and then you decide.
