Why It's Not a Good Time for Science Education in the Once Golden State of California.
Leonard, William H.; McComas, William F.; Mason, Cheryl L.
CSTA Journal, p4-7 Win 2000
The California framework for science instruction has inspired models across the nation. However, religious and political conservatives, under the guise of increased academic rigor, are challenging the California science framework. These individuals want more rote facts, less scientific inquiry, and less hands-on activities, plus a new set of traditional and antiquated standards. Teachers without content expertise are also allowed to teach science and mathematics. (PVD)
