PragerU's climate-change-denying videos come to Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Department of Education announced a "partnership" with PragerU Kids, a project of a right-wing advocacy group that produces videos aimed at schoolchildren, on September 5, 2023, according to KFOR (September 5, 2023).

Although the PragerU videos are endorsed only for use in social studies classrooms, E&E News (August 7, 2023) previously observed that they frequently "use talking points common among global warming skeptics to frame climate science and policy."

Endorsement of PragerU's videos in Florida elicited concern in August 2023, as NCSE previously reported; in the same month, there was a spurious claim of endorsement in Texas on part of a member of the state board of education, as NCSE previously reported.
