Today, PR spin proclaims that GM is safe and absolutely necessary for fighting world hunger and feeding a growing population. But when all sides of the story are looked at, it is clear that this is simply not the case. . . .

Unfortunately, many educators fall prey to the PR. Figures who front the PR strategy are invited to give talks . . . pose as independent science experts, while doing their best to hide their close ties to these corporations . . . If anything, it highlights how, due to lack of time or interest, some teachers do not carry out adequate research about issues they teach about and merely rely on texts distorted by commercial interests or turn to people with close links to the agritech industry . . .
The result is that students are exposed to a one-sided story full of falsehoods and convenient omissions. This amounts to indoctrination . . . and effectively deprives children of the right to make informed choices . . . .
