Twenty states named “lead partners” in writing of “Next Generation Science Standards”; Florida not among them

h/t Curriculum Matters

Achieve, Inc. has named 20 state partners for the writing of the “Next Generation Science Standards”, which will be based on the “Framework” released earlier by the National Research Council.

The list of “Lead State Partners” does not include Florida, which played leading roles in the earlier adoption of Common Core Standards in math and language arts, and in the development of common assessments for those standards.  It may be that the departure of Commissioner Eric Smith has led to a change in the state’s attitude toward common standards, or that science is not considered a priority in the state.

Achieve expects to complete the science standards by the end of 2012.
