Report: States face continued big lift with science standards
from THE Journal
New science standards have been adopted in some form by forty-three states (the most recent being Maine), based on some combination of the Next Generation Science Standards and the National Research Council's Framework for K-12 Science Education. But that's hardly the final word for instilling more STEM into the classroom. A new report from Achieve, a survey among state education agencies on science policy, has found that there needs to be more work done by states to emphasize required instructional time for science in early grades, establish a course sequence for science topics in middle school and match graduation requirements with state-defined science learning for high school.
