A Report on the Implications for the Science Community of Three NSF-Supported Studies of the State of Precollege Science Education.
Smith, Herbert A.
This critical, analytical, and interpretive review of three National Science Foundation-supported studies of the state of precollege science education examines the implications that these studies may have for the science community. Areas discussed include student problems, teacher preservice and inservice education, curricular innovations and reforms in elementary and secondary school science, laboratory instruction, teaching resources, national and local perceptions of the educational system, and values problems. One recommendation made among others is that a commission be established to examine in depth the goals and purposes of precollege education. (Author/CS)
