Chavez Starting to Brainwash Children

Yesterday, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela threatened to close or take over any private school that refuses to submit to the views of his socialist government.  He is in the process of developing a new school curriculum as well as textbooks that will help educate "the new citizen," according to Chavez.

In an article from the Associated Press yesterday, Chavez said, "Society cannot allow the private sector to do whatever it wants."

But today, in a follow-up article, a 30-year-old Brazilian said, "They don’t impose what we have to learn. If we don’t agree with something, we express our opinion."

He sounds brainwashed to me already! Que opinan ustedes??
