New Mexico

New Mexico follows the Next Generation Science Standards as a framework for teaching climate change in their schools. Despite this, they have done nothing beyond this in the realm of climate education and it has remained stagnant for a number of years. Though they are teaching climate change, they are doing the bare minimum and more must be done in order to prepare students for our changing world
