    Middle-Level Teachers Needed for

    Paid Research Study

    The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), the University of California, Berkeley, and the Climate Mental Health Network are seeking participants for a research study of middle school teachers to learn more about student emotions related to climate change, and what resources would help educators respond to and support those reactions in their classrooms.
