Of course the usual suspects are livid about this, a proposal to eliminate education on climate change in British schools or up to age 14. This is in the draft guidelines of a national curriculum.
Where will the Greens be if they can’t have cohort after cohort of children indoctrinated into the Faith?
The latest draft guidelines for children in key stages 1 to 3 have no mention of climate change under geography teaching and a single reference to how carbon dioxide produced by humans impacts on the climate in the chemistry section. There is also no reference to sustainable development, only to the “efficacy of recycling”, again as a chemistry subject.
The move has caused alarm among climate campaigners and scientists who say teaching about climate change in schools has helped mobilise young people to be the most vociferous advocates of action by governments, business and society to tackle the issue.
