Hi Freedom Fighters,

The March 2018 Draft Science and History & Social Science Standards are now up for review. I went to the State Board of Education (SBE) meeting this morning where the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) and Superintendent Diane Douglas were presenting the process they went through in developing these drafts. I can already tell you I am not happy with the Science Standards Draft and the Next Generation Science Standards being embedded throughout the Science Standards! The developmentally inappropriate Common Core Mathematics Standards we called out in 2016 are also embedded in the draft Science Standards- Standards for Mathematical Practice! (see my attached testimony).

Now is your turn to have your voices be heard on the drafts of the Science and History & Social Science Standards. The Public Comment period will be from March 26th-May 28th, and all of your comments can be submitted directly to the ADE public comment website here through a survey:

The draft Science Standards can be found here: https://cms.azed.gov/home/GetDocumentFile?id=5ab417b63217e11f9482a57e

The draft History & Social Science Standards can be found here: https://cms.azed.gov/home/GetDocumentFile?id=5ab4174f3217e11f9482a574

Public meetings will also be held where you can submit your comments in person on Thursday, April 5th in the State Board of Education Room (1535 W. Jefferson Rm #122, Phoenix, AZ 85007), from 3:30-5pm for the draft History & Social Science Standards. On April 6th in the State Board of Education Room, from 3:30-5pm for the draft Science Standards. These standards will be adopted formally in the Fall of 2018 so please submit your comments ASAP!
