Jonathan Karp


A former high school science teacher with a background in oceanography, I am interested in issues of human rights, environmental policy, and education. I am passionate about debating ideas in the public forum, and protecting freedom of speech within it. When I'm not working or writing for PolicyMic, I am also an avid reader, cook, and soccer player. Fun Fact: I once entertained the notion of buying a leather tie on the premise that it could be used on off-days as a belt. I still regret not buying it.
