ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Environmental groups says a proposed change in an environmental education regulation would create a giant loophole for school districts seeking to avoid the new requirement.

The regulation published earlier this month would allow students to fulfill the environmental education requirement by passing existing science and social studies requirements.

Don Baugh, executive director of the Maryland No Child Left Inside Coalition and vice president of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, says studies show students who receive environmental education do better in science, math, social studies and other courses.

The public has until Feb. 3 to comment on the regulation.
