Dumbing down Math and English wasn’t enough for Governor Hassan and the NH Board of Education. They are now on the verge of dumbing down the science education in our public schools too.
Governor Hassan put together a Committee to advise her on STEM education. This committee was set up to simply hand her directions to adopt the NATIONAL Next Generation (Think Common Core for Science) Science Standards.
Not only is she FOLLOWING the Obama Administration that is forcing dumbed down Common Core Standards on our children and schools, she is going to push through (and we expect the NH BOE to rubber stamp this one) the Next Generation Science Standards.
IT is CRITICAL that you read through the following information. Make sure you educate yourself again on WHY this is NOT good for our children and OUR schools.
Then we urge you to contact Governor Hassan and the members of the Board of Education and tell them to STOP pushing dumbed down standards on our kids.
IT’s time for Governor Hassan to DO HER JOB and develop QUALITY state standards that put our children and our schools FIRST.
