Science mom knows what’s up. Even in Idaho scientific information belongs in science classrooms.

Attend a hearing and provide input on science standards if you believe science should be taught in science classrooms in Idaho.

Hearings are being held across the state to provide an opportunity for public input regarding the Legislature’s decision to exclude references to climate change from public school science standards in Idaho. 

While the Idaho Legislature voted to remove climate change standards a few months ago the Standards are headed back for another round of public hearings before returning to lawmakers in January for permanent approval.

Please attend a public hearing if possible, times and locations are listed below.
