The Texas State Board of Education has released the Proclamation 2014 science curriculum review findings; their discoveries were unsettling. Across all science curricula submitted for the 8 year adoption, the content reviewers identified 10,657 factual content errors (see below). STEMscopes, however, had the fewest among publishers submitting K-12 science curriculum.
A committee of teachers and state science community leaders came together this summer to review instructional materials for TEA's Proclamation 2014. The committee has concluded reviews of STEMscopes' alignment to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, awarding STEMscopes K-12 a rating of 100% alignment. Though the Commissioner of Education must still recommend these instructional materials to the State Board of Education for adoption.
