From the Teachers and classrooms section of http://www.storyofstuff.com/faq.html:

"We have had an enthusiastic response from educators around the world about the Story. We’re working with Facing the Future: People and the Planet, a non-profit education organization that provides resources and action opportunities on global issues and sustainability for teachers, students and the public. We’re collaborating right now to figure out how to create a curriculum for use in classrooms. Stay tuned; we’ll have more information on this in upcoming newsletters."

While this could have been an interesting and educational video, the blatant insertions of ideology are enough to enrage any parent or property tax payer.  What is your reaction when you hear Annie Leonard describe the job of the government (minute 2:10 - "It's the government's job to watch out for us, take care of us.  That's their job.")?  Do you agree?  Or do you have a different vision of the government's role in our lives?

Take note of the opening credits:
