    TEACHERS NEED TO BE TAUGHT CLIMATE CHANGE

    Why U.S. Science Teachers Struggle to Teach Climate Change; Political values influence how teachers approach the issue

    Justin Worland, February 11, 2016 (Time Magazine)

    “Science teachers in the U.S. often botch lessons on climate change, hampered by conservative values in their community and their own lack of knowledge on the topic…[ Climate confusion among U.S. teachers] found that 70% of middle school science teachers and 87% of high school biology teachers devote some class time to climate change. But the quality of those lessons can vary greatly…Nearly a third of U.S. teachers…say that the phenomenon is likely caused by ‘natural causes’ despite the fact that more than 95% of climate scientists agree that humans have driven global warming…Conservative political identity was the strongest indicator that a teacher would suggest that climate change may be rooted in natural rather than human causes…And even those who accept the science of climate change may teach about potential natural causes to avoid upsetting conservative members of the communities where they live…A lack formal education on climate change among teachers also contributes…[The debate over climate change] may be similar to the ongoing debate over teaching evolution…[that pits] religious conservatives against advocates of science…” click here for more
