Kansas Science Standards Review
The new, improved Kansas science standards -- now containing a heaping helping of pseudoscience, at no extra charge -- are now going through an “external expert” review by Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning, reports Scott Rothschild in the Lawrence Journal-World.
The Aurora, Colo., company, McREL for short, is nationally known for helping design student performance standards. The board hired the group for an amount not to exceed $22,425, and the review is due back to Kansas education leaders this week.
