The National Center for Science Education, as usual, has been doing a spectacular job in the United States in reportage and work on the advancement of proper science and science curricula and informational reportage on what matters in th long view for the health of global society with science, and the United States as a key player in the world’s scientific and technological advancement to date.

The NCSE was published in the national magazine of the Sierra Club in a feature entitled “Climate Curricula Hit US Schools.” In the article, the Deputy Director of the NCSE talked about the public schools as one of the last places in which most of the population of the United States will receive a formal instruction in science inclusive of anthropogenic climate change education.

Chance Duncan, NCSE Teacher Ambassador, was reported as helping in ‘defusing a legislator’s trying to block new state science standards in Arkansas in 2015.’ Duncan stated, “[If students] can leave high school understanding how they impact the environment and can make better choices about transportation or energy usage … I think that makes them better adults.”
