Indoctrination. That is what Utah state lawmakers decided to implement last week. A state committee voted unanimously to recommend the Mineral and Petroleum Literacy Act. This bill would use oil, gas, and mining revenues to develop an elementary school curriculum to teach young children “the virtues of mineral industries.”
Republican state Rep. Jack Draxler outlined the intolerable situation that left him no choice but to sponsor the Mineral and Petroleum Literacy Act: “Few elementary school-age children can say how important oil, gas and coal are to Utah’s economy or for paying for their educations.”
