In the past few years there has been an increasing focus on the fact that we as individuals and as a nation have a large impact on the environmental health of the world. This has been coupled with dramatic growth in fields related to the environment. Would your candidate support introducing environmental studies into the education curriculum to foster recruitment into these fields, especially since the solutions to many of our current environmental issues will be left for future generations to solve? At what level (ie. elementary - high school) in the education system does your candidate feel is appropriate? How broad of a program would your candidate envision (i.e. one class, a national curriculum, etc.)?
