Back in January this year I posted about interference in our education system (at least that is what the politicians call it - an education system) and wondered whether parents were aware of this. Today, courtesy of The Albion Alliance Presents, comes notice of another insidious intrusion into the welfare of children, an intrusion of which I was not aware and one that makes me wonder whether parents of children are.
The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) produces what is termed a S'cool agenda for young people and which advises that the 2011 Agenda does not only help young people to keep track of their daily activities and homework, but is also intended to raise awareness on fundamental rights issues in Europe. The FRA S'Cool Agenda provides useful information on topics like racism, xenophobia, discrimination and homophobia as well as a calendar of commemorative days and a number of other features. From the 2011 Agenda it is also learnt that S’cool Agenda is published by the FRA for teenagers between 12 and 18 years old. The purpose of the S’cool Agenda is to raise awareness about fundamental rights. Every year, limited numbers of the S’cool Agenda are printed and distributed across the EU for free.
I may be old fashioned but I always assumed that children went to school to gain an education - to be taught the correct use of their language, to read and hopefully develop a love of great literature, to learn about the history of their country and its evolution, to acquire a basic grasp of mathematics, etc etc. Do read S'cool Agenda and then ask yourself this question:
If our politicians are so hell bent on preventing the 'grooming' of children for sexual practices, how in the name of damnation do our politicians allow the 'grooming' of young minds for political purposes?
