Gary L. Evans: Bad instruction

May 14, 2014 

The writer of the May 5 letter “ Not smarter” indicated that fifth-graders in our public schools know more about climate change (what happened to global warming?) than the Republican Senate candidates, citing that there is a weather section in their curriculum. He has added proof to what I have thought for a long time.

It is that there is more liberal/progressive indoctrination being “instructed” in our government schools than actual education. It’s no wonder that this country is falling like a lead balloon when compared against the rest of the world in math, language and science skills.
