TheVoiceOfJoyce Connecticut adopts Next Generation Science Studies program (NGSS) , one of 20 states to move ahead with teaching science and climate change in their curriculum. Codifying Climate Change studies, takes education out of the culture wars and politics, allowing the study of Science. To survive in our World, kids must understand their environment scientifically in order to make pragmatic choices for survival.

Starting next July, Connecticut will become one of the first states in America to mandate climate change studies across its public schools as part of its science curriculum.

The new law passed earlier this year comes as part of the state’s attempts to address concerns over the short duration – and in some cases, absence – of climate change studies in classrooms. The requirement follows in the footsteps of New Jersey, which in 2020 became the first state to mandate K-12 climate change education across its school districts.
