GMO Company DuPont Pioneer Bribing Third-Grade Students With 'Seed' Money

Biotechnology giant Pioneer Hi-Bred, which is owned by chemical giant DuPont,  has made a strategic inroad into public education in Hawaii.
According to the paper, 59 students at EES were  recently each given $25 in seed money to open bank accounts at Kaumakani  Federal Credit Union as part of a program known as the Children’s Savings  Project, which is meant to teach kids how to manage their money as well as  how to participate in the banking system. But the program’s collaboration with  Pioneer Hi-Bred opens up a whole new can of worms politically, as the concepts  of saving money, growing food with seeds, and biotechnology are all being  intermingled with one another for what appear to be ulterior  motives.

“Through a grant with DuPont Pioneer, every student who opened a  savings account received $25 in seed money,” explained Lori Carl, a third-grade  teacher at the school, to The Garden Island. “Each month throughout the  year, Kaumakani Federal Credit Union will come into their classrooms and because  of DuPont Pioneer’s generosity, students will be able to add to their  deposits.”

Corporate generosity, a tax-deductible brainwashing ploy

This is all  good and well, except for the fact that part of the program involves making  students painfully aware of who is funding the whole thing — Pioneer Hi-Bred.  The students are being  told they will one day be able to attend college because of the “generosity” of  Pioneer Hi-Bred, for instance, even though the company very likely receives its  own “generous” tax deductions for contributing to the program. And in the  process, Pioneer Hi-Bred also gains the convenient opportunity to soften the  minds of the next generation towards its GMO technologies.

The setup is quite similar to the Monsanto-backed  “Biotechnology Day” that was held at the North Carolina Museum of Natural  Sciences earlier this year. Thousands of students, parents, and other  patrons that toured the museum that day were given a healthy dose of pro-GMO  propaganda in conjunction with the typical “natural sciences” experience, which  in a much less subtle fashion conveys the idea that biotechnology is somehow  natural.
But as long as there is plenty of cash flow coming in from these  “generous” companies, educators like those at EES, museum curators, and others  apparently have no problem allowing their students and visitors to be exposed to  the corporate agenda of GMOs hidden behind the disguise of charity. And as long  as parents continue to sit on the sidelines and allow these wolves in sheep’s  clothing to target their children, the madness will never end.
