Connecticut follows the Next Generation Science Standards as a framework for teaching climate change in schools. However, they are also attempting to require that the climate change requirements in the NGSS be added to the science curriculum. Connecticut is going above and beyond to try and prepare students for our changing world, and they are obviously moving in the right direction.
