Florida not only has no standard or mandate for teaching climate change in their schools, but they have implemented a new curriculum which allows for teachers to argue against human caused climate change. Florida is showing a staunch regression in the realm of climate change education. If the state is to make any progress in terms of climate education, they must not only rescind climate change denying policies, but they must enact policies which require climate change to be taught in schools

Climate Issues

  • Rising sea levels and retreating shore lines
