Katie Worth, investigative reporter and author of the new book Miseducation: How Climate Change Is Taught in America, reviewed science textbooks from all fifty states and travelled the country interviewing teachers and students to compile a narrative about how climate change is being taught in American public schools.
She joins Noah to discuss the partisan divide in climate change education, the lobbying forces shaping curriculum around the country, and challenge of balancing students’ right to learn the facts with teachers’ values and opinions.
