Is it right for our children to be constantly brain washed over issues that are at the moment politically topical, (which at the moment is the enviroment)? Why it is of course correct to teach them certain enviromental along with other social issues, as part of their education, this should only take place as long as it does not interfer with the teaching of their normal lessons included in the national syllabus. It is becoming more and more relevant for children as young as six to be taken out onto the streets to demonstrate in support of certain issues that concern their school or immediate surrounds. I have witnessed these young pupils with placards supposedly constructed by themselves, and petitions to local councillors, also supposedly written and circulated by these very young persons. All this action took place as part of a campaign for the provision of two litter bins outside their school. A report in the local press stated how proud the local councillor was on the way the children conducted their protest, this was also echoed by their teacher. As if children of six would have been able to organise such a protest themselves, when they can only just read or write, least of all been bothered whether or not they had litter bins provided. Another case of the improper use of children by their liberal left teachers and councils, was the recent use of free children labour to clean up local areas. The children were kitted out with fluorescence vests, gloves, litter pick-up tool, and black plastic bag, and then sent out on the streets picking up litter. Since more and more children are leaving school these days with very little education, should not the time they are at school be better used, than taken up by mad-cap schemes such as these?
