Maryland: Graduates must be green

Maryland students must be “environmentally literate” to earn a high school diploma, reports the Baltimore Sun. No other state has such a requirement.

Under the rule, public schools will be required to work lessons about conservation, smart growth and the health of our natural world into their core subjects like science and social studies.

Districts will develop their own teaching and evaluation plans, which must be approved by the state superintendent. Maryland will not provide more funding for environmental education.

Eco-socialist propaganda will trump science, predicts Red State.
