Garden School Climate Change Debate

Garden School’s 4th through 12th grades participated in a debate over climate change. Six upper school students presented arguments for and against human-generated climate change. They all extensively researched the subject and spoke eloquently about the issue. In addition, questions were fielded from the audience. Many of the insightful questions were asked by our younger students, including our 4th graders. This formally organized debate truly represents the spirit of our school.
