NGSS UPDATE

"The West Virginia Science Teachers Association (WSTA) endorses Policy 2520.3C Next Generation Content Standards and Objectives for Science in West Virginia Schools . The organization endorses this policy due to the widespread involvement of West Virginia K-16 science educators and stakeholders in the development and review of the Next Generation Science Standards. We believe these standards will support high quality science education in West Virginia and improve opportunities for our students.
It is essential that fidelity to the language in the NGSS remain. Modification of the standards negates our national recognition as an NGSS state. Uninformed and random modifications to the standards cast doubt on the credibility of the standards and do not serve our students well and will lead to misconceptions."
