Kansas, Missouri School Board members to explore improvements in science-related education

Nearly 100 elected school board members from three dozen districts in Kansas and Missouri will meet with some of the nations top education experts in Kansas City on Saturday (June 23) to explore how local boards can help to support and improve science, mathematics and technology education from kindergarten through high school.

The Kansas City seminar is the latest phase in an historic three-year national project that is developing plans and materials to help school boards nationwide develop policies and public support for state-of-the-art science, mathematics, and technology curricula. The project is co-sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the National School Boards Association (NSBA), with funding provided by the Kansas City-based Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

Saturdays seminar is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at The Westin Crown Center, 1 Pershing Rd., Kansas City, Mo.

The presentations and discussions at the seminar will cover a range of critical issues and challenges in K-12 science, technology and mathematics education. The seminar also will consider public attitudes about science, mathematics, and technology education; performance standards and science literacy; and how school boards can effectively engage the public on controversial science-related issues. The day will conclude with a session devoted to helping board members integrate what they've learned into a preliminary action plan tailored to their individual districts.

Among the speakers: Jo Ellen Roseman, director of AAASs pioneering Project 2061 science literacy initiative; Joseph S. Villani, NSBAs deputy executive director; Will Friedman, director of Public Agendas Center for Advances in Public Engagement; Connie Bertka, director of the AAAS Program of Dialogue on Science, Education and Religion; and Rita Barger, assistant professor of Curriculum & Instructional Leadership at the University of Miss
