Dad pulls son out of school over climate change 'brainwashing'



Max said he didn't want to dress up as a hippie for his school's environmental day.

'We shouldn't be worrying': Boy's anger over school's climate education.


A fed-up father has pulled his son out of school and has accused staff of brainwashing children, after the climate movement made its way in to his son's Year 4 classroom.
Around the country thousands of students have taken to the streets to protest on climate change, but Matthew Karlos is infuriated about the topic being taught at his son's state school claiming, "it's ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous."
Mr Karlos' 10-year-old son Max told A Current Affair reporter Pippa Bradshaw "they asked us all to dress up as hippies, and sing this song, big yellow taxi."

"We shouldn't be worrying about the end of the world," he said.
Agreeing with his son, Mr Karlos claims, "it's just brainwashing the younger generations."

The father and son duo are taking a stand against climate change activism.
"They shouldn't be teaching kids that, and yeah we shouldn't toss away our rubbish like I said before, but we shouldn't be worrying about the end of the world," Max said.

The climate change debate has been front-and-centre of late after 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg called out politicians at the 2019 Climate Action Summit in New York on September 23, telling world leaders, "We will never forgive you."
