Oregon Teacher of the Year Award Recipient John Borowski tells Betsy about the pressure he’s faced from school administrators to stop teaching his students how science can be practically applied to the largest challenge that they will inherit from us, climate change. Mr. Borowski points to corporate pressure on science teachers nationwide not to tell our kids too much about their future, but he teaches undeterred, determined to respect his students’ education and teach them to think critically about the world: "I ask kids to take a newspaper article on the environment and analyze it. I always told them that I’ll grade the paper based on two things: you presentation of facts, and how well you analyze those facts. But I’m not going to grade them on their opinion."  LISTEN (11 min)
