Massachusetts Bill Would Mandate Climate Education In Public Schools

June 6, 2023

The Massachusetts legislature is set to consider a bill to “include climate education in the Massachusetts elementary and secondary school curriculum.”

Massachusetts House Bill 3887 would require teaching students in public schools the following regarding climate change:


(i) [T]he human impact on the carbon cycle

(ii) [T]he effect of climate change on life that exists on Earth

(iii) [T]he effects of the environment on health, economics, and agricultural systems

(iv) [T]he impact of climate change on the water cycle

(v) [T]he impact of the environment on natural disasters and weather.


The information could be taught in class —  including, but not limited to, “science, history and social sciences, technology or business.”

The bill was referred to the state legislature’s Joint Committee on Education on Tuesday, May 30

The sponsors of the bill are state Representative James Hawkins (D-Attleboro) and state Representative Tram Nguyen (D-Andover).
