The Kids Want To Be Taught ‘Climate Change’ But Schools Aren’t Ready Or Something

Last time I checked, the adults (as much as you can call Liberals adults) were in charge of the school system, not the kids, and the adults should be in a position to understand what is truly important to teach kids

Students want climate change lessons. Schools aren’t ready

Not too long ago Coral Ben-Aharon, a 15-year-old sophomore at Granada Hills Charter High School, didn’t bother to use her school’s recycling bins — and didn’t know how plastic waste contributes to greenhouse gas emissions.

But then her friend Sarah Ali convinced Coral to join the science team. Now the two are trying to invent a creative way to recycle waste on campus by melting discarded plastic and making a bench with solar panels, where students would be able to charge their school-issued Chromebooks.

Their project exemplifies how California’s science standards are taking hold in classrooms as educators seek to follow curriculum guidelines that call for more relevant, hands-on lessons and stronger instruction on climate change and the environment.

However, widespread science teacher shortages and the lack of training among many current teachers on climate change threatens the goals of the curriculum that aims in part to prepare students to be environmental problem-solvers as they enter adulthood. It also hinders an opportunity for educators to capture a newfound passion among those teenagers who are eager to engage in a growing youth climate activist movement, science educators say.

Really, does it matter? Because a goodly chunk of these kiddies will end up getting silly degrees with little value when they attend college, not degrees in science or anything that has value.

To help address this gap, the University of California and California State University systems, which prepare 56% of the state’s pre-K through high school teachers, has launched a “Climate Change Literacy Project,” an initiative aimed at teaching teachers more about the topic and teaming them up with scientists to help.

Meanwhile, they fail to learn history, English, and real science.

CSU Chancellor Timothy White said the 23-campus system is “integrating climate and [environmental] sustainability courses across all of our academic disciplines” to help teachers enrolled in credentialing courses and other students.

In other words, it’s going to be about social justice, Victimhood, left wing politics, and Blamestorming other people.
