Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order
Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills
and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based
Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification
and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and
undermining parental authority.
So now they admit they are opposing critical thinking? huh? It explains a lot, doesn't it?
