“Critical Thinking” at #OCSB . #ottnews

The OCSB like to brag about teaching “critical thinking”. In fact, they are not even close to teaching critical thinking. Critical thinking is not identical to teaching logic and logical fallacies, but it is huge component.

B is a member of the “Critical Thinking Consortium”. tc2.ca

A search for the word “logic” on the TC2 website turns up zero hits.

==================

With the lack of true  “critical thinking” and logic being taught, university students become mindless, emotion-filled “social justice warriors” (SJWs) worrying about micro-aggressions and safe spaces and shouting down anybody who wants to say anything that bursts their group-think bubble.

Ms. Valeriano, a 19-year-old sociology and women’s studies student, said later that she was happy Ms. Coulter was unable to speak the “hatred” she had planned to.

“On campus, we promise our students a safe and positive space,” she said. “And that’s not what (Coulter) brings.”

It is more accurate to say that children are being taught “Critical Theory” (from the Frankfurt School, Gramsci, Cultural Marxism etc)

Don’t be fooled by the propaganda from Wynne and OCSB that “critical thinking” is being taught to children!
