New Science Standards Adopted
The draft of the new standards had been praised by Dr. Larry Lerner as "one of the finest I have read in the course of six years of reviewing state science standards. It is clear, knowledgeable, superbly organized, and well integrated... They compare well with, and in some ways surpass, the very best standards adopted to date." Dr. Lerner is a nationally recognized expert on science standards who has written three reports on this subject for the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation.
NCSE congratulates all those in New Mexico who worked long and hard to produce their new science standards.
