NCLB and Science Education

I came across this post on NSTA’s site and thought it was definitely worth getting out to the DEN.  Check it out.

It is anticipated that Congress will soon be considering revisions to the No Child Left Behind Act. Although schools nationwide must assess students in science, in most states science scores do not count—only reading and mathematics assessment scores are counted in the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measure. As a result many schools, especially at the elementary level, have cut back on the amount of science provided to students. NSTA believes it is time to Make Science Count. We strongly encourage Congress to make science a required component of the adequate yearly progress measure under Title I of the No Child Left behind Act. Join us in our campaign to Make Science Count.

    Hi! I found your website unintentionally this morning, but am very pleased that I did! Not only is it entertaining, but also straightforward to use as opposed to dozens that I’ve found! I was trying to discover what theme you had employed, – anyone have any thoughts? I’ve applied a similar all round style myself, but see that your web page loads much more rapidly, though you seem to have a lot additional material. The only dilemma I’ve had is with the header, which seems narrower that the actual page in Opera v8.0, although it seems OK in IE and in firefox… perhaps it’s time to switch! Wonderful web site, extremely tidy job, and a wonderful inspiration for my extremely humble attempt! I’ll be looking to improve my own site and will certainly visit again soon!
