Science Teaching and California's Future: CenterView
Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning
Cutbacks in funding for science professional development and efforts to recruit and retain teachers further undermine efforts to strengthen science education throughout the state. Additionally, the least prepared among these science teachers are concentrated in low-performing schools, a fact that raises questions about equal access to quality science instruction, particularly for the state's low-income and minority students. How policy-makers resolve these and other issues related to science education will have long-term implications for the success of California's students and the future of the economy.
