Getting Pennsylvania Ready For Marcellus: Kai Schafft Discusses HIs Mission

As part of our ongoing series devoted to the Marcellus Shale's economic impact in the State of Pennsylvania, host Mark Laskow talks with Kai Schafft, an Associate Professor of Education at Penn State University in the Department of Education Policy Studies, about his efforts to provide insights to the rural outreaches of the State's educational system as to the impact that Marcellus will have.   Kai discusses his efforts to implement Marcellus-based educational curricula into Pennsylvania schools, to educate students about the shale, and to prepare them for the future careers in the oil and gas industry that will be waiting for them upon graduation.  Plus, Matt Pitzarella of Range Resources checks in to reflect on the passing of Ron Morris, and share his thoughts about Ron's tireless advocacy of Marcellus as an impactful economic driver for the State.
