How the Next Generation Science Standards Fail America

April 8th | 2 pm ET
Webinar Event

In the last decade, more than 20 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), a K-12 science curriculum. Most of the remaining states have adopted closely related standards. Unfortunately, the NGSS fail to prepare students for undergraduate science education and scientific careers. Millions of students now take science courses that don’t teach important aspects of life and physical sciences, including Newton’s law, thermodynamics, the pH scale, magnetism, sonar and radar, cell & tissue types, viruses and bacteria, DNA, RNA, and cell division.

Worse, the NGSS don’t even teach the Scientific Method!

Thankfully, we now have an opportunity to fight back and return proper science instruction to our schools.

Join the National Association of Scholars on April 8th at 2 pm ET as we launch Climbing Down, our analysis of the Next Generation Science Standards. Climbing Down was written by Jennifer Helms, professor of nursing at Arkansas Tech University; Jim Nations, director of The Cassandra Project; and David Randall, Director of Research at the National Association of Scholars

Be sure to join us for this launch event, where we’ll discuss how this flawed curriculum forced its way into thousands of schools without a pilot program or vetting, what we can do to stop the NGSS from being adopted by more states, and what we can do to reverse course in states that have already adopted it.

This webinar will feature Shepard Barbash, Author of Clear Teaching; Duke Pesta, Director, FreedomProject Academy; Ze'ev Wurman, executive at a Silicon Valley semiconductor company and a former senior policy adviser in the U.S. Department of Education; and report authors Jim Nations and David Randall.
