The Kansas State Board of Education is preparing to vote on legislation proposing district school teachers present both sides of the global warming debate.

The bill, introduced by the House Education Committee last week, says science classes must “provide information to students of scientific evidence which both supports and counters a scientific theory or hypothesis.”

The legislation specifically mentions climate change and how instruction of such “controversies” should be presented objectively.

“The legislature recognizes that the teaching of certain scientific topics, such as climate science, may be controversial. The legislature encourages the teaching of such scientific controversies to be made in an objective manner in which both the strengths and weaknesses of such scientific theory or hypothesis are covered,” the bill reads.

No hearings have been scheduled yet for the bill.
