So since I'm not teaching anymore (though I am tutoring now) I only live vicariously through my teacher contacts. One of my former colleagues sent me an image of a survey she sends home to parents just asking for general comments and things to get to know families better. One of them apparently came back with mostly nothing except: "Don't teach climate change. It is a hoax." as a request/suggestion for teaching their student, etc. Climate change is now part of the standards across the country (the NGSS) though perhaps the current administration might de-federalize science standards, but until then it has to be taught. I have run into parents like this and kids who believed this because of their parents, but I pretty much just taught it anyway because it was a requirement, and nuts to anyone who didn't like it. Out of curiosity, how would you deal with this? Or would you deal with it or just ignore it?
