Kansas Seeks Public Comment on Science Standards

KSCB News - January 17, 2013 5:57 am

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas education officials are asking for public comments on new science standards for public schools.

Comments received through Jan. 29 will help refine a final draft of the Next Generation Science Standards. That’s part of a state-led effort to create national standards for science education for kindergarten through 12th grade.

The effort is similar to the Common Core standards adopted by states for reading and math.

The new science standards should be completed in March.
