According to the Wall Street Journal, India is the fastest-growing source of new illegal aliens to the U.S. This stat may concern Americans more than usual considering a new report about what is being taught in New Delhi.
As reported by the Associated Press, an environmental science textbook for fourth-grade students, titled “Our Green World,” has been used in hundreds of schools in New Delhi and the neighboring states of Punjab and Haryana since last April.
The textbook’s first chapter instructs students to conduct a cruel experiment that ends with the death of kittens.
In the first chapter, titled Living Things Breathe, the book encourages youngsters to do an experiment with two wooden boxes and two kittens.
“Make holes on the lid of one box. Put a small kitten in each box. Close the boxes. After some time open the boxes. What do you see? The kitten inside the box without holes has died,” read the text.
Parents began calling New Delhi-based publisher Parvesh Gupta, of PP Publications, to complain a few months ago.
“They said it was harmful for children and cruel to the animals,” Gupta told the AP on Friday, adding that the book was discontinued and would no longer be used in Indian elementary schools.
The education ministry in India controls and approves of textbooks for middle and high school students, but elementary schools have the freedom to choose textbooks on their own.
