The State of State Science Standards 2005 - This report states that, "Science education in America is under assault, with 'discovery learning' on one flank and the Discovery Institute on the other." The report reviews science standards in the states, awarding an "honors" grade of an "A" or "B" to 19 states, a "C" or "D" to 16 states and a failing grade to 15 states. The report also examines trends in standards since 2000 and the treatment of evolution in state science standards. Individual state profiles start on page 27. (Paul Gross, The Thomas B. Fordham Foundation, December 2005)...
