Debate on Kentucky's science standards on KET

The link for the debate on Kentucky's science standards last night on KET's "Kentucky Tonight" is now up. Notice that every time you point out something important missing from the science standards the answer always seems to be that it is because we want local school districts to have the freedom to do things the way they want.

Wouldn't the best way to give local school districts freedom be to not have any state standards at all? In any cae, the guests were:
  • State Sen. Mike Wilson, R-Bowling Green, chair of the Senate Education Committee
  • State Rep. Derrick Graham, D-Frankfort, chair of the House Education Committee
  • Martin Cothran, senior policy analyst for The Family Foundation of Kentucky
  • Blaine Ferrell, chair of the committee on legislation for the Kentucky Academy of Science.
