Scholastic's InSchool Marketing division offers ...corporations as a curriculum producer for hire. Its mission is "to promote client objectives" and "make a difference by influencing attitudes and behaviors." That is NOT what schools are for!

They need to be stopped and signing the petition is one way and contacting your local schools and finding out if this is part of their "teaching" and if it is making it clear it must stop. If they won't stop it get local signatures to take to a school board meeting an then if that does not work, make it clear you will work to make sure no more school levies pass.

Noted and signed. Our poor children are but pawns on a terrible chess board ruled by the monied power elite who wish them to remain uneducated and enslaved.

Thanks for noting and commenting.

Please contact your local schools, this garbage can't be tolerated.

Someone that would know how to do it should look into how much government money is going to Scolastic and see if they have violated any having to do with money only going to companies that provide education (real education, not propaganda advertising education) materials.

There has to be a way to not only stop them but have them fined (or in a perfect world jailed).

And please spread this around, not nearly enough are acting on this.

Thanks
