State Legislative Report, v15 n16 Oct 1990
In January 1990, the National Conference of State Legislatures surveyed the curriculum directors at each state department of education regarding efforts to improve science education. Those surveyed were asked to list and describe statewide science education programs in the public schools and the involvement of state legislatures in creating and sustaining those programs. This report highlights the actions of nine states and the District of Columbia in this curriculum area, and provides brief descriptions of activities being implemented in all responding states (31 in all). The nine states included are: (1) California; (2) Colorado; (3) Kansas; (4) Kentucky; (5) Michigan; (6) New Hampshire; (7) New York; (8) Oregon; and (9) Rhode Island. A list of respondents at each state's Department of Education is also indexed. (KR)
