And that is exactly what the score is.

Wonder if the curriculum covers the failures of the fracking process - like polluted ground water and land and air and the blowouts and the fact that once the water table is polluted it can not be fixed the problem will continue.

Take it they are likely kept from making field trips?

I have no idea. I would think they have to go out and work for free at some point. If the industry is creating and providing the text books and the testing etc., I fail to see how that it would allow for independent thought processes.

You know if they went into the field that all smokers would likely be monitored very very closely.
