The West Virginia Board of Education rescinded a proposal on Wednesday on teaching requirements for education science standards on climate change.
Over a hundred people flooded the board room at the state capitol, many of them because of a controversial addition to the science curriculum for k-12 grade students.
Recognizing their concerns, the board voted to place the proposal back on a 30-day public comment period.
The vote came at the suggestion of Clayton Burch, the Department of Education's chief academic officer. “It's important to get it right.”
