Call me crazy, but I don’t think we’re going to see any cutting edge theoretical constructs coming out of high school kids.
Sure, but thats a straw man. The point of letting children question science is to equip them be be analytical in their thinking and not just blindly accept the “science” or “fact” coming out of an “expert.”
Had we equipped children like this years ago we may not have created the generation of global warming crazies that put the current clown in the whitehouse.
Whats wrong with teaching children to think critically? If you’re a teacher it may be time for you to retire...
Thinking critically is what science is all about.
Introducing long-since refuted ideas as valid criticism is nonsense.
So just ask yourself, are these standards made to better science or to weaken it by introducing non-scientific and anti-scientific religious beliefs in the guise of critical thinking? The latter is clearly the case. That's what these new standards are all about and everyone knows it.
Claiming that this is pro-science is nonsense.
