#8: How do we safeguard science in American schools?
In Episode 8, Quinn and Brian ask: How do we safeguard science in American schools?
Here to answer: Don Duggan-Haas, a lifetime advocate for science education standards (he literally wrote the textbook, and yes, this is the correct use of “literally”), as well as Therese Etoka and Jai Bansal, two immigrant high school students who fought to keep climate change science a part of the Boise, Idaho public school curriculum.
Together, we form a game plan to ensure every American student gets a comprehensive science education.
Also: Black Panther, Shuri (swoon), the Justice League, James T. Kirk, thoughts on Parkland, and more.
