The Toronto District School Board is indoctrinating our children.
“Canadian Communities, Past & Present” is a textbook designed for Grade 6 social studies classrooms.
It contains all the usual globalist, crypto-Marxist mumbo-jumbo about things like “global citizenship.” But it goes one step further.
The textbook names countries in which child soldiers have been used in armed conflict: “Afghanistan, Colombia, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Mali, and Yemen.”
Did you catch that?
The textbook includes Israel as a country that uses child soldiers.
In truth, the Israeli Defence Forces are one of the most publicly profiled, best funded, and moral armies in the world.
Israel does not use, nor would they ever need to use, child soldiers.
On the other hand, Israel’s enemies’ use of child soldiers is well documented.
Yet this Canadian curriculum paints Israel’s army as immoral monsters who recruit children to war.
This Grade 6 textbook isn’t rooted in facts. Instead, it uses the same tactics of lies and conspiracy theory exercised by the Palestinian Authority to stoke hatred against Israel.
The TDSB has a policy document which outlines certain standards regarding bias. It states that any “content must be free from racial, ethnocultural, religious, regional bias and bias by omission.”
Considering this elementary school textbook falsely claims that Israel uses child soldiers (while omitting to mention her neighbours, who actually do), this textbook does not even meet the TDSB’s own guidelines about bias.
