On Climate Change, Confused Teachers Make for Misinformed Students

Junior high and high school science instructors often impart incorrect or contradictory information.

Do you regularly ask your kids “What did you learn in school today?” How often have they answered, “That the climate is gradually warming due to human activity, and that’s really dangerous!”

.

Never, you say? Not a big surprise.

.

A nationally representative survey of high school and junior high science teachers finds the average instructor devotes only one to two hours during a school year to the vitally important subject. It also finds that, when it comes to climate change, many teachers are misinformed, confused, or biased by political ideology.

.

As a result, American youngsters are learning not as much as we had hoped, and not enough to provide students a solid grounding in the science, said Penn State University political scientist Eric Plutzer, the studys lead author. Rather, many receive explicitly contradictory messages, he and his colleagues write in the journal Science.

.

Thirty percent of teachers emphasize that recent global warming is likely due to natural causes, and 12 percent do not emphasize human causes.

.

The study, conducted by Penn State and the National Center for Science Education, featured data from 1,500 public middle school and high school science teachers from all 50 states. (The high school instructors taught biology, Earth science, chemistry, and physics.) Instructors indicated their level of knowledge about climate change, and the way they present the subject to their classes.

.

Seventy percent of middle school science teachers, and 87 percent of high school biology instructors reported they do address the subject, however briefly. The likelihood of any student missing instruction in climate change altogether is low, the researchers conclude.

.

But the quality of that teaching is a different matter. Thirty percent of teachers emphasize that recent global warming is likely due to natural causes, they write, and 12 percent do not emphasize human causes.

.

In addition, 31 percent of those who teach climate change report sending explicitly contradictory messages, emphasizing both the scientific consensus that recent global warming is due to human activity, and that many scientists believe recent increase in temperature are due to natural causes.
