School board axes geography textbook for ‘pushing a particular political belief’

A Pennsylvania school board has blocked the use of a proposed textbook after one school board member led the charge against the book on the grounds that it was nothing more than liberal “indoctrination.”

The West York Area school board rejected the book, “Rubenstein: The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography, 13th edition,” on a 5-4 vote after board member Lynn Kohler opposed its approach to teaching about climate change, according to the York Dispatch.

The newspaper summarized Kohler’s comments to say that he thought the book was “an anti-capitalist extension of the environmental movement.”

“I believe this falls into the indoctrination category of pushing a particular political belief,” Kohler said at the board’s May 19 meeting.

    Lynn Kohler, you are proof one good person can make a difference. As a teacher we need more Conservative parents to step up, put the doors aside and participate in School Boards. Its there that we can actually save the future of America.

    But isn’t Kohler’s position just the same?

    Shouldn’t all theories be put under scrutiny?

    But the bad news is that 4 people voted to keep the book in the school system. Only 5-4 is frightening.

    I’m glad someone was paying attention. This is just Marxist indoctrination. The United Nations “sustainable development” goals are intended to bring in a global Marxist technocratic state. The “Green New Deal” would be a contract that would force the United States to implement United Nations “sustainable development” goals by the year 2030. Don’t be fooled.

    I’m grateful for Lynn Kohler’s leadership and stance in winning this battle. Nowadays, it takes great courage to speak out as a conservative in the midst of so much liberalism. Although I live in Texas, I’m grateful for your stance as I’ve noticed that a successful liberal assault in one state often migrates to others.

    Thank you Lynn for taking the time and having the courage to stand up for our kids. We should be teaching our children how to listen to differing views, and make up their own minds after being presented with the available facts, information and views. Instead, they are being taught WHAT to think, not HOW to think. From climate change all the way to the liberal deleting of factual history. It would be nice if this could be the beginning of a trend all over the nation.
