A Midvale Middle School teacher has come under some pressure from a student’s parent, for allegedly crossing the line from education to advocacy by showing Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth in a science class. City Weekly asked Riley Booker of Euro Treasure Antiques if he thought the teacher’s approach to teaching environmental science was biased?
I think it’s important for kids to know what’s going on with global warming. It does seem to be affecting us more and more each day. Interesting storm patterns, warmer winters etc. I haven’t seen the movie myself, but it doesn’t sound like to be too big of a deal. I think the [parent] probably needs to find something better to complain about.
