Florida Citizens for Science asks Florida Department of Education to join national science standards effort

From a release by the Florida Citizens for Science:

How do we get our science standards to an A? One possible solution that we here at Florida Citizens for Science advocate lies in the efforts of the National Academy of Sciences to create Next Generation Science Standards…

If Florida joins this project now, we’re not obligated to commit to NGSS adoption when it’s done, making it a low-risk venture. But not joining means missing out on the opportunity for Florida educators to influence the final product. Working with others states will spread the financial load, making the effort a lot cheaper for Florida’s taxpayers. We encourage the Florida Department of Education and the Florida Board of Education to put our state in the forefront of this worthwhile endeavor.
