Venezuela's Chavez Warns Private Schools
Updated 12:52 PM ET September 17, 2007

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez threatened on Monday to close or take over any private school that refuses to submit to the oversight of his socialist government as it develops a new curriculum and textbooks.

"Society cannot allow the private sector to do whatever it wants," said Chavez, speaking on the first day of classes.

All schools, public and private, must admit state inspectors and submit to the government's new educational system, or be closed and nationalized, with the state taking responsibility for the education of their children, Chavez said.

A new curriculum will be ready by the end of this school year, and new textbooks are being developed to help educate "the new citizen," said Chavez's brother and education minister Adan Chavez, who joined him a televised ceremony at the opening of a public school in the eastern town of El Tigre.

The president's opponents accuse him of aiming to indoctrinate young Venezuelans with socialist ideology. But the education minister said the aim is to develop "critical thinking," not to impose a single way of thought.

He is using the premise of getting them young and reducing worry when they are older.

...the private schools in the country are mostly Catholic schools and a few Universities with affiliations here in the US. There is a British private school along with American run University programs which all will eventually end. He is just trying to get rid of religion and outside influence... par for the course. Sending his people back to the stoneage intellectually and socially. Complete isolation is next except from ... maybe, Cuba! I give it a couple of years and somebody will take him out! And they'll blame the USA...
