Oklahoma currently has a framework in place to teach climate change in schools. However, the wording about what is required to be taught is ambiguous, they’ve previously rejected the NGSS which establish a framework for teaching climate change, and they’ve attempted to divert funds from public schools that propagate “climate change ideology”. Though they have a system in place to teach climate change, they have to stop attempting to tear down the system and rather further the teaching as to better prepare students.

Climate Issues
