Illinois follows the Next Generation Science Standards as a framework for teaching climate change in their schools. Despite this, there is nothing beyond and there has not yet been any attempt to implement legislation to increase climate literacy in the state. At this time, Illinois is essentially doing the bare minimum and must implement change if they hope to prepare their youth for our changing world

Climate Issues

  • Increasing frequency and severity of floods
