This bill requires each school district board to develop written plan establishing climate change instructional program for kindergarten through grade 12 with standard developed by Department of Education. Requires Superintendent of Public Instruction to withhold grants if noncompliant. Provides grants from Student Investment Account include meeting requirements for climate change instructional program and to describe in grant application how school district is meeting climate change instructional program requirements. Requires career and technical education programs to integrate climate change instruction to support climate-focused sustainability career pathways.
The program is to “educate” students on how to confront the current and expected impacts of climate change from diverse decision-making perspectives, and skills to address psychological and mental health challenges associated with ongoing change, effects of life choices, human rights implications, how to reduce the effects, climate’s disproportionate impact on the environment and natural resources of historically underserved populations, discuss economic and political factors contributing to climate change – do they contribute, where is the science?
Who holds the truth about climate change? Science is never settled, and it requires facts. There is a documented statement from the U.N. that the climate crisis was invented to suck money out of nations. Climate changes, but to use it for indoctrination and propaganda to shape the mind of kids towards a political agenda is not education.

More Government overreach do not brain wash our kids.
I look at what is being taught to my grand kids and I can not believe that they can even go out into the world and be a person with a single thought that has not been shaped by the Left Wing Progressives of School Districts.
This bill is terrible it takes money away from the education of our children and wasting it on a global condition they and mankind can do very little about. The scheme to redistribute wealth from western countries into corporations that will skim 98%, while using a measly 2% to change nothing, borders on evil. Brainwashing our children into this scheme is bad enough. Taking their futures away by gutting their education is worse.
