This just in: Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is expected to address the National Science Teachers Association at its annual meeting on March 20. The event is being held in New Orleans.
To the science educators out there: let’s suppose the secretary opens the floor for questions after his remarks. What questions would you ask him about science education policy in this country? NSTA and some other organizations have suggested that No Child Left Behind should be changed so that it mandates that science scores count towards AYP, as reading and math do now. Do you agree? What else might you ask the secretary?
