In a letter sent today, NSTA strongly encourages the Wyoming State Board of Education to adopt and fully implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Last fall, a committee of Wyoming educators endorsed the standards, however, Wyoming’s legislature recently passed a measure intended to block the state board from adopting them. Supporters are encouraging members of the board to move forward with a vote to adopt the standards. The matter will be addressed at the board’s next meeting on Friday, April 11.
