Climate-Change Indoctrination

Educit obstetrix, educat nutrix, instituit paedagogus, docet magister.*

These days, unfortunately, teachers neither teach nor instruct; they propagandise.  Alfred, my son, has written a review of his high school’s Society and History class on “the impact of climate change”.

* “The midwife delivers, the wet-nurse nourishes, the tutor instructs, the master teaches.” (Varro, ap. Nonius Marcellus, 447, 33.)
