Students and climate change

Students being actively involved in climate protests in the UK recently have gained widespread international media attention. It is quite interesting as it actually raises at least 2 points that we can ask ourselves in relation to what we expect of education as a society. First, who decides curriculum content and by what criteria? Many students were concerned that one of the issues most likely to effect them in the future is not well represented in their curricula. Second, to what extent should we encourage or discourage young people from protesting? Can you be too young to be politicized?
