Pope’s Education Pact Hits Wrong Targets

Educationists, teachers, policymakers and parents are lamenting Pope Francis’ Global Compact on Education (GEC) for its failure to address the most critical issues facing children — from the Copernican revolution of “child-centered pedagogy” to LGBT indoctrination in Catholic schools.

Launching the GEC Thursday at Rome’s Pontifical Lateran University, the pope explained that the pact would “ensure that everyone has access to a quality education consonant with the dignity of the human person and our common vocation to fraternity.”

Noting the devastating impact of the Wuhan virus pandemic on the schooling of millions of children, Francis stressed the need for education as “a natural antidote to the individualistic culture that at times degenerates into a true cult of the self and the primacy of indifference.”

Insisting that “a different world is possible,” he called for “transformative” education as an “act of hope” and “one of the most effective ways of making our world and history more human.”

“What is called for is an integral process that responds to those situations of loneliness and uncertainty about the future that affect young people and generate depression, addiction, aggressiveness, verbal hatred and bullying,” the pontiff added.

In comments to Church Militant, educator and policymaker David Kurten observed how the “pope’s vision for a ‘Global Education Compact’ aligned perfectly with the aims of the United Nations’ Agenda 21/2030 and its sustainable development goals, which seek to create a godless future out of the twin fabrications of climate and COVID alarmism.”
