Alabama Introduces New Standards For K-12 Public Schools.

The Washington Post (9/18, Layton) reports that the GOP-controlled board of education in Alabama approved new standards for K-12 schools, which will require students to learn about climate change and evolution. The new standards will also emphasize “learning by doing, as opposed to reading and memorizing.” The Post notes that the new standards were passed with little controversy. This was in part because students are expected to know this curriculum for college and additionally, the standards committee is now a large committee, which includes subject matter experts and university professors.
