TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Kansas officials will receive an overview next week of the latest draft of new science standards for public schools being developed by a national consortium.
Kansas and 25 other states are working on the National Research Council on common standards for possible adoption in their public schools.
Kansas officials involved in writing the guidelines say the goal is to concentrate on core scientific concepts.
The 10-member state Board of Education will receive copies of the standards on Tuesday. The board agreed to give the standards serious consideration for adoption, a decision that could come later this year.
