(NaturalNews) 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 Garden Island, this key purveyor of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) has developed a partnership with Eleele Elementary School (EES) in Eleele, Hawaii, where the company has apparently been given free reign to subtly indoctrinate the school's students into GMO dogma while bribing them with so-called "seed" money.

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.
