Susan Gore (conservative) disagrees with governments being involved in what children learn (like with climate change). She lives in Wyoming which was the first state to reject government intervention on education over such theories. She wants climate change to be known as a theory, not a fact (like other conservatives). Liberals believe that she says this because the teaching of climate change in schools in Wyoming could affect its economy of mainly oil and coal. Wyoming was not the first state to reject this (Oklahoma did too). This controversial issue is much like the issue of evolution. Parents and local educators should decide what is taught to their children (the argument of conservatives) while liberals want the government to have an impact on what children learn especially climate change.
