West Virginia Joins the Cutting Edge in Science Ed

On December 10th, West Virginia joined the ranks as the thirteenth state to
accept the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), a federal 
program designed to standardize student literacy and interest in science 
across the United States. School board Administrators in 26 states 
collaborated with 41 writers to develop the new standards. Among 
other states that have accepted the NGSS are California, Kentucky, 
Maryland, New Jersey, and Rhode Island. States who have yet to 
accept the NGSS are still adhering to the National Science Education 
Standards and Benchmarks of Science documents, which are now 15 
years old. West Virginia school administrators plan for full-scale 
implementation of the new standards between 2016 and 2017.
