New Curriculum = More Incompetence and Deception

08 November 2007 01:02:00

“If anyone actually believes that the new curriculum can improve the
intellectual standard of New Zealand children then they really have been
sucked in,” said Peter Osborne, Libertarianz Associate Education Spokesman
today. “This curriculum is mere window dressing for our shoddy,
incompetent and deceptive education system, whose victims, as always, are
the pupils.”

“As an example,” Osborne said, “The re-inclusion of a greater emphasis on
the ‘Tweaty of Waitangi’, makes it obvious that the children of New Zealand
are once again merely political pawns. Too scared of losing the support of
potential coalition partners, Labour have buckled to pressure from the Maori
Party and the Greens. History shall be re-written, completely devoid of
fact, and we will see another exercise in propaganda and attitudinal
conditioning.”

“One only needs to see the projected time frame for curriculum
implementation to know that state education is painfully slow, primitive and
very expensive. Yet the real tragedy in this is that parents have even less
control over the education of their own children than ever before.
Libertarianz would put an end to Nanny State’s one-size-fits-all
conditioning centres. There are no winners while the State controls the
minds of New Zealand children,” Osborne concludes. “Parental control and
choice will become a reality only when Education and State are separated,
and future governments denied access to the minds of New Zealand children.”

“It’s Enough to Make you Vote Libertarianz!”
