Schools Receive The Inconvenient Truth

The DfES today sent a resource pack designed to help teachers and pupils explore and understand the issues surrounding climate change to every secondary school in England.
The pack, which includes the Al Gore film An Inconvenient Truth and a number of other resources, was developed by Defra and the Department for Education and Skills. It is accompanied by online teaching guidance showing how to use the resources in the pack in science, geography and citizenship lessons.
While I personally am in favour, I can see this causing some complaints, not only from the climate change sceptics (yes, we have those in the UK too), but also from a few parents who are already saying that their children are already worried about this issue.

Update: Yup, I was right.
