Scottish Schools to put Al Gore in the classroom

Meanwhile, north of the border, the Scottish Executive has announced Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth is to be put on the curriculum for all secondary schools in Scotland. The initiative is aimed at maximising the educational message of the film and demonstrate the impacts of global warming to children.

Pilot screenings of the film are to take place in schools towards the end of the current academic year, prior to a full introduction in the 2007-08 school year. This is a great education initiative - hopefully the rest of the UK will follow Scotland's lead. Jus' dinnae gie 'im a glasgae kiss...
