Our students, attending public schools paid for with our tax dollars, deserve a good education that is not fraught with political propaganda. Sadly, propaganda is now so pervasive in our public schools that proponents no longer try to hide their attempts to infuse it. This along with faulty teaching methods result in low achievement.
For example, last week, NH State School Board Chairman John Lyons announced that he’d been to DC to talk about infusing the “ONE CAMPAIGN” into NH’s school curriculum, and possibly into the curricula of every other state as well. To quote Lyons, “New Hampshire is the right size to be an incubator for all these new programs”.
The “ONE CAMPAIGN” is a movement that openly promotes H.R. 2639, the “Global Poverty Act of 2009″, a bill “to require the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.
While this is just the tip of the iceberg, it is a good example of a blatant attempt to politicize our public school students with the agenda of redistribution of the wealth.
Please let the NH State School Board know how you feel about using our children as political pawns.

This video demonstrates how students have been inundated with social values about the redistribution of the wealth to other countries, but know little about anything else.
