Bill Nye is a statist’s statist; a real educational dictator. In this video, which I believe he was meant to be arguing in favor of Common Core standardized testing, he instead goes off the rails in favor of a rigid Common Core curriculum. But it’s not just any curriculum he supports, it has to be the one he ideological supports:
• You must learn the alphabet!
• You must learn math!
• You must learn evolutionary biology!
• You must learn physics!
• You must learn chemistry!
• You must learn climate change!
This is why when liberals are in a position of power, they are the antithesis of freedom. How about instead of deciding what you personally want everyone to learn you instead expose students to entire array of different views, theories, and beliefs…then let them decide which is correct. How about instead of forcing children to learn, you make them want to learn. That is the entire enlightening aspect of a vast education - to openly want to obtain knowledge and make critical decisions based on that knowledge. Bill Nye would rather force-feed the masses into his viewpoint of the world so we’re all complacent drones. That dumbs down the population, not ameliorates it.
