Early Childhood Education

This bill would require public school districts in the state to “embed climate change education throughout all subject areas, not just in science curriculum.” This addition to the curriculum would be financed by the general fund from the Minnesota Department of Education for the fiscal year for $1 million yearly to support implementation. In a separate bill (SF 3949) these recommendations were expanded to include all K-12 students.
