INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE CURRICULUM
AT MILLARD NORTH, ELSEWHERE,
IS ANTI-YANKEE, PRO-U.N.
Here's a well-documented article on it. IB is spreading like wildfire all over the country because of peer pressure: "elite" students are admitted to it, which makes anxious parents believe it is the "best." Soon, the leaders of tomorrow will all be globalized instead of Americanized. Bad, bad, bad.
Hope this article makes it around to the members of the Millard Community Schools board, who put the IB program in at Millard North High School and recently expanded it down to a middle school as well. It's time to reverse course and go back to a traditional, pro-American curriculum:
This program is based on the ridiculous idea that one cultural system cannot be superior to others. Is the culture of say, Iran or Russia just as good as that of America? Clearly not. The extreme fear of being labeled "ethnocentric" causes educators to shun teaching that some American values are superior to those of other cultures.Post a Comment
