Next Generation Science Standards Discussion on NCSD Board Agenda

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Natrona County School District trustees are scheduled to discuss the Next Generation Science Standards at a Monday work session.

It will be the first of two scheduled discussions the board will have on the controversial standards which present climate change and evolution as fact.

Earlier this year, the Wyoming Legislature and Gov. Matt Mead prohibited the implementation of the benchmarks at the state level, despite several teachers and administrators endorsing the standards.

Critics say NGSS would force Wyoming students to view coal, fossil fuels and production agriculture in a negative light. They also say the standards would directly infringe upon religious freedoms.

Those who support the standards say NGSS can better prepare Wyoming high students for college and post-college careers.

The work session is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. The regular session will start at 7:30 p.m.
