Diocese of San Jose Instituting an Education Plan Bill Gates Loves, but Is Not Liberal Arts Based, Rather Fact Based.


Time for parents, grandparents, priests, bishops and citizens to educate themselves about the big Gates Foundation program for education across America.  It is not a classic liberal arts education for our K thru 12 students.  It is based on “facts” as corporate America sees them. It is not grounded in forming minds and intellects towards making sound and wise decisions with a well-formed conscience. It is in fact a curriculum designed by a liberal foundation that pushes the idea of strict population control.  The reader is directed to several excellent articles about the core curriculum in particular and the program in the Diocese of San Jose.  Pray for our children and our Church to reassess the adoption of such a program.
