Truth" by Al Gore in a school science class. Concerned by what she learned

part of the curriculum in elementary schools.

Education and Environment Initiative (EEI).The state of California approved
this curriculum for the classroomandis currently poised to lead the nation
in environmental literacy. GYM is now in a partnership with the State to
