'Miseducation: How Climate Change is Taught in America'

The attached audio is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment.

Investigative journalist Katie Worth traveled the nation to learn what students in different states are taught about climate change. What she found was political polarization that is creating a two-tier system of knowledge for the next generation of problem-solvers. Her latest book is called Miseducation: How Climate Change is Taught in America. She joins us to talk about the book and South Dakota's C- score on climate change education.
