Teaching climate change
Connecticut has a mandate to teach Climate Change in schools.
When Lawmakers voted to approve this year’s budget, tucked inside the spending package was a bill to make sure Climate Change is part of the science curriculum.
It was the result of a years-long push to make sure Connecticut students learn about the issue.
But nearly 90% of schools in the state already teach the topic. The mandate will impact a small number of schools.
So is this new law really necessary?
