Nonprofits Bringing Climate Change Into Classrooms was published on May 17, 2022 on the Earth911 Website.
People can’t take action against climate change if they don’t understand what it is, why it matters, or what they can do about it. Considering what’s at stake, the failure to integrate climate education into science curricula across the country begins to seem like criminal negligence at best. Even where academic science standards call for climate literacy, classroom teachers rarely have the resources they need to teach it properly. Fortunately, nonprofits are stepping up to help teachers bring the science behind climate change into the classroom.
