British Columbia has recently instituted a curriculum that deals with reform in the public education system. One thing of note was further emphasis on environmental sciences within the classroom. Even though the school system needs many changes in my opinion, having an outlook on environmentalism is perfect. Teaching young students about their environmental impact will make them into environmentally-conscious adults, which will create a new generation of environmentalists, which we need on this planet. Also, allowing students to dictate their passions towards an area that they want will hopefully a generation of young, motivated learners. Hopefully this is implemented correctly!
