Professor Says Next Generation Science Standards Would Narrow Curriculum

The Lawrence (KS) Journal World (4/16, Hancock) reports that Richard Schrock, "an education professor who trains biology teachers at Emporia State University" faults the Next Generation Science Standards as meaning that "students will no longer be taught certain disciplines." He said, "At the secondary level in the standards, there is no zoology for animals, no botany for plants ... No anatomy or physiology, no microbiology." The standards' supporters said that "those subjects would still be covered, although not in the same way."
