Science is next!

I've been thinking about this NY Times article:

A few bullets from the article:
  • Next Generation Science Standards were developed by 26 state governments
  • States are not required to adopt them
  • Evolutions and climate change must be taught
  • The focus would be helping students become more intelligent science consumers
  • Biology and chemistry may disappear entirely from high schools, replaced by holistic courses

I sure hope there are teachers, those who have studied and thought about teaching and learning, helping to develop these standards!
