The Orlando Sentinel School Zone blog reports that with about one week to go for folks to rate and review the Next Generation Science Standards for possible Florida adoption, things are looking positive.
As of Wednesday, 631 people had reviewed the standards, put together by panels of scientists and 26 states (but not Florida). Eighty eight percent had recommended Florida adopt them.
But, of course, we’re always going to see stuff like this:

Fortunately, such opinions seem to be in the minority so far. Let’s keep it that way! If you haven’t submitted your own review, do so now.
