For Zack Kopplin, it all started back in 2008 with the passing of the Louisiana Science Education Act.

Nearly five years later, the 19-year-old Kopplin has become one of the fiercest — and most feared — advocates for education reform in Louisiana. We recently spoke to him to learn more about how he’s making a difference.

In case you haven’t heard of him before now, he also spoke about his battles on Hardball back in 2011:
