NCSE's deputy director Glenn Branch discussed the recent report "Making the Grade?" with the Yale Climate Connections radio show/podcast (January 11, 2021). Prepared by NCSE and the Texas Freedom Network Education Fund, "Making the Grade?" assesses the treatment of climate change in state science standards.
"State standards influence not only what's taught in the classroom but the content of textbooks, tests, and teacher training," Yale Climate Connections wrote in its description of the segment. "So Branch says it's important for all states to implement standards that reflect the scientific consensus that climate change is real and human-caused."
