Miller, Christopher L.
Science Educator, v19 n2 p22-30 Fall 2010
By contrasting two case studies of school districts, this paper illustrates the effectiveness of K-12 science departments in supporting elementary science education, especially in response to NCLB's push towards the articulation of curriculum across all grades and as a response to the erosion of instructional time on science in elementary schools under NCLB.
