Study: Wisconsin Has the Worst Science Education Standards in the Country

"The grades are out – Wisconsin is the worst in the United States when it comes to science curricula in the classroom. 
     In the words of   
a recent study
our state’s science standards are 'simply worthless.'
A 2012 report from the Thomas B. Fordham Institute gauged the strength of science programs across the nation. With several different approaches to teaching science in the classroom, every state presented a different challenge to students and analysts. This study, authored by a cabal of notable researchers, broke down the difference in science standards throughout the country. Without a 'Common Core' of data standards for scientific studies, each state has a significant amount of freedom with which to determine what their students learn about science in the classroom."
