CenterView: Science Teaching and California's Future

Produced by The Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd

Description

This issue of CenterView, produced by the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd, describes the factors influencing the shortage of fully prepared and effective science teachers.

It explores unfair and inequitable opportunities in science education, budget cuts that risk efforts to strengthen science teaching in California, and the diminished influence of science education in California.

Ideas are presented for what can be done to address the lack of financial support for teacher development initiatives and the unfair assignment of the least prepared science teachers to students in greatest need.
