A Change In The Climate of Climate Education

From Glenn Branch of the National Center for Science Education comes some news about climate change education and schools.

Many states already require the teaching of climate change in effect, through its inclusion in their state science standards, but not as a matter of statute. A bill, HB 5011 introduced in Connecticut would amend the Connecticut General Statutes to require "that the science curriculum of the prescribed courses of study for public schools include the teaching of climate change and that such teaching begin in elementary school."  HB 5011 is not the first such bill in Connecticut.
