The NEA will contact all school districts through the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) to recommend incorporating into their science curriculum, causes, effects, and solutions to climate change and pollution. The NEA will inform each school district of NEA’s position supporting teaching current and established researched-based data from reputable science resources. and include human’s involvement in climate change and the possible solutions. The NEA will provide online resources for teachers to plan and implement lessons, including any existing union-friendly teaching resources.

Rationale/Background

We must embrace the imminent crisis of climate change. Every student must be exposed to the threat their generation faces. They must also be told of the real solutions and how they can make a difference.
