California Testing Out New Science Standards With “Early Implementer” Districts.

EdSource (9/2, Levin) reports 10 California school districts are trying out the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) this school year under the California K-8 NGSS Early Implementation Initiative. The initiative introduces a new curriculum and way of teaching science to elementary and middle school students. Educators hope the “early implementer” districts can share lessons they learn about the new curriculum with other districts before the new standards are implemented statewide. NGSS, sometimes compared to Common Core standards, has only been adopted by 15 states.
