Keep UN program out of our schools

Letter to the Editor

Imagine, if you will, there is an international club that exists for the sole purpose of imposing the Constitution and Bill of Rights on every country in the world that doesn’t already follow that form of government.

Imagine that this club had a program that it sold to schools around the world.

Imagine further that this program stipulated every subject taught must be framed within the club’s above-mentioned political philosophy.

Wouldn’t you agree that allowing this club to invade and control public schools would be highly inappropriate?

That’s exactly what’s happening with the International Baccalaureate program (www.ibo.org). We should instinctively understand the inappropriateness of allowing a club with a political agenda to control public schools.

Yet, this United Nations-affiliated program is being invited in by some New Hampshire school boards and justified by some “conservative” New Hampshire legislators.

Every subject taught within the International Baccalaureate program must be framed within the UN’s internationalist, global government agenda. It charts students’ “attitudes” toward the same. That is the only requirement of the program, for which your tax dollars are going to Geneva.

To learn specific facts about the IB program, and why you should encourage your New Hampshire senators to vote for HB 1403, please visit: www.mvsd-ib.org/ib/2012/04/14/facts-about-ib.
