Petition the Department of Education to require climate curriculums

Dear Dr. Cordona,

As Biden’s pick for Secretary of Education, we call on you to require climate change curriculums in public schools across the U.S.

Climate change is the greatest crisis of our time— and we must do everything we can to stop it. Multiple studies have shown that when children learn about climate change in school, it increases their parents’ concern about climate change. You have the power to make a real impact in the fight against climate change.

Here’s one study for reference:

Thank you for your consideration.
