Curriculum changes

The State Office of Education has presented proposed changes to the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade core curriculum. I want to share three examples of what sixth-grade science teachers will be required to teach your children.

(1) Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century. (2) Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems. (3) Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.

If you don’t want this taught to your children, you need to contact your state legislators and your representative in the State School Board during the 90-day public comment period.
