Textbooks Still Aren’t Teaching the Climate Crisis

“The corporate textbooks that the kids get largely ignore the crisis. They either fail to educate the kids about the climate catastrophe, or they relegate it to the last pages of the book,” says Jesse Hagopian, who has taught in Seattle public schools for over 20 years, and also works for the Zinn Education Project, which recently published a Climate Crisis Timeline showing the very strong links between slavery, colonialism, racial capitalism, and climate change.
