Our children are being indoctrinated and prevented from being able to think for themselves. This mind-controlling technique is called neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and it is often used in an educational setting to influence the way children think.
Children around the world are being taught in school from an early age to believe that vaccines are safe and effective as part of their education. Not only is there evidence to support this fact, but there is also evidence that many children are being regularly brainwashed to believe that if they do not receive their vaccinations, they could get ill and die from vaccine-preventable diseases.
The Learning Network, which works in conjunction with The New York Times, lays out a series of lesson plans for teachers in the US, including a lesson titled Fighting Disease: Researching the History and Biology of Vaccines. This lesson in particular should interest the many parents who are unaware that their children are being brainwashed to think in a particular way when they send them to school. 
Overall, there are a total of six different quizzes covering various topics, including the following: the immune system, vaccines today, vaccine safety and vaccines in history.
In quiz number one, the students were asked to evaluate the following six statements to determine whether or not they believe them to be true or false:
- Vaccines often cause serious illness and death.
- Vaccine-preventable diseases like measles and chicken pox cause only mild illness, so there is no real benefit to vaccination.
- Vaccinating a large group of people helps keep those who haven’t yet been vaccinated, like young infants, healthy.
- It’s better to catch a disease like the measles than to receive a vaccine for it.
- Vaccine-preventable diseases are now so rare, there’s no longer a need to vaccinate against them.
- Research has shown a clear and consistent link between vaccines and autism.
The quiz was presented to the students electronically, and after they had provided a true or false answer, they were given a score with the correct answer along with an explanation. The answers to the above questions were as follows:
- False. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, serious side effects or complications from vaccines are exceedingly rare; most vaccines cause only mild side effects like soreness at the injection site.
- False. Diseases like measles and chicken pox not only cause discomfort during the illness, but also can have complications like pneumonia or other bacterial infections.
- True. Vaccinating large numbers of people against diseases keeps the number of infections in a community low, reducing the risk of infection for others, like young babies who are not yet old enough to receive certain vaccines. This concept is called community immunity.
- False. Catching a vaccine-preventable disease not only makes you likely to spread it throughout the community, but there is also the risk of developing rare and serious complications.
- False. While many vaccine-preventable diseases are rare in the United States, travelers to other countries may be exposed and bring the disease home. There have also been outbreaks of diseases like measles and whooping cough in the United States in recent years. Public health authorities say one possible reason is a growing number of people refusing to receive vaccines.
- False. In fact, the medical study that purported to link vaccines to autism was retracted after its author, whose medical license was revoked, was found to have altered patient data. More information is available from the Institute for Vaccine Safety.
