Abstract

Of 506 teachers and administrators surveyed, 53% (change-ready group) did not think science curriculum addressed important knowledge, skills, and abilities, compared with 23.5% identified as change resisters. Strong opinions about what content to teach, and how, indicated a need to find common ground and maintain open dialog to effect change. (SK)
