This Is What Happened When Scholastic Tried To Bring Pro-Coal Propaganda to School

Bad news, and shame on Scholoastic. Good news, and thank you to all who worked to change Scholastic's propaganda attempts.



This Is What Happened When Scholastic Tried To Bring Pro-Coal Propaganda to School: While developing activities on coal and the climate crisis in 2011 for Rethinking Schools magazine, I ran across a curriculum,The United States of Energy, from Scholastic, the venerable education publisher.
It was a colorful series of lessons, aimed at fourth-graders, which explored the various sources for energy in the United States. The material on coal discussed its many “advantages.” But when I looked for discussion of the disadvantages … nothing.
