ALABAMA: Public Comment on Science Standards
Alabama is in the process of re-writing state science standards, and will accept comments on the first draft from ALABAMA RESIDENTS ONLY. The deadline is NOVEMBER 28. NCSE has written to members on how they may submit comments; you may also request this information from the State Department of Education. While the State has made print copies of the draft available at state textbook repositories and some other locations, NCSE volunteers have the standards available at two websites. If one link doesn´t work, simply try the other. Note: the standards on both web sites are incomplete at present; the volunteers hope to post complete versions soon.
