Juneau school officials consider teaching climate change
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Juneau school officials are considering adopting national science education standards that include teaching middle and high school students about climate change.
Alaska's Energy Desk reports the Juneau School District is borrowing some core ideas from the Next Generation Science Standards, which include providing students with an understanding of the relationship between human activity and the Earth.
Climate change is included in the state's science education standards. The Alaska Department of Education says it's largely up to the school districts to decide how the topic is taught.
