National Education Standards

Perhaps we are moving closer to national education standards. What would this mean for Environmental Education?

Panel releases draft of national education standards
A group of experts and educators has released a draft of its proposed national education standards for students in English and math. The broad curriculum guidelines are expected to get more specific in 2010, when grade-by-grade standards will be outlined. For now, the proposal includes an expectation that students will be able to solve systems of equations and real-world problems using math and develop writing skills based on tone and topic.
