Attached is The Fordham Foundation’s review of the NRC’s Framework for the
Federal National Science Standards, coming soon to your neighborhood school. If you don’t like them or don’t like the fact that the federal government is forcing states to “voluntarily” implement these standards by threatening to yank federal funding for education if they don’t adopt them, too bad. That ship has already sailed.
In case you were wondering, the
Federal National Science Standards haven’t been written yet. So, yea, states are being forced to “voluntarily” adopt these standards before they’re even written. And 43 states have already done so. The best news of all – History is next.
