Groups with national influence

One of these organizations has too much influence and in a state platform says this:

“Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.”

The other has too little influence, and one of their values statements is this:

“We hold that all human beings are entitled to freedom from others’ religious ideologies in living their lives, engaging with service providers, and interacting with government.”

Is it too easy to guess which is which?

Found both stories through Friendly Atheist.
