On behalf of the State Board of Education, I welcome you to these hearings. My fellow board members with me here on the subcommittee are Mrs.
The purpose of the hearings that will be held over the next several days is to assist us as board members in understanding the complex and oftentimes confusing issues regarding science education.
A brief history of how we arrived at these hearings may be helpful. In June of last year a state-wide committee appointed by the Commissioner of Education and comprised of 26 public and private educators spanning elementary, primary, secondary and post secondary levels, retired educators, curriculum coordinators, and private practice physicians began the process of reviewing and revising the state science standards.
The writing committee met several times between June and November and presented a draft of the standards to the State Board in December of At the same time eight members of the writing committee submitted what is now referred to as the Minority Report asking the State Board to consider some changes to the draft.
Through much discussion at the state board subcommittee, the three of us, were formed to further examine the issues contained in the Minority Report.
Also, after much discussion it was decided that the best forum to address the issues was via hearings, such as these we'll have over the next several days. In order to conduct the hearings in a reasonable time frame and in a civil matter there are a few house rules and procedures that you, the audience, and indeed all of us need to be aware of.
First, we're on a very tight, tight schedule. We have more than 20 experts appearing before the subcommittee within the next three days, it is critical that we stay on schedule.
In order to do this I request that no comments come from the audience. The expert witnesses have come from quite a distance to present their information, we should allow them every courtesy. We ask that you do not display signs of support or opposition by yelling, applause, and so forth.
We would also ask that each of you turn off your cell phones, please. Each experts' testimony has been given an allotted amount of time as determined by the presenters.
Following the expert's presentation the legal counsel for the opposing viewpoint will be given half that amount of time to ask questions.
Following that we, the subcommittee members, will be given half of that time to ask questions. For example, if an expert testifies for 20 minutes, the opposing counsel will be given ten minutes for questioning and the subcommittee members will be given five minutes for questioning.
The time for questions will be adhered to, therefore the questions should be succinct and not sound like a speech. We will take one ten-minute break this morning at We'll follow the same schedule for the next two days and also on Thursday, May 12th.
If you leave for the day we'd ask that you please give your name tag to the KSBE staff at tables outside the auditorium.
Additionally, please note that Memorial Hall does not allow food or drink in the auditorium. We would ask that you kindly abide by this policy. Before we begin I'd like to make some introductions. Right here to my immediate right is Mr. Pedro Irigonegaray and Mr.
Evan Kreider, they're legal counsel for the mainstream viewpoint. On the other side just facing me is Mr. Additionally, a court reporter is recording all of the proceedings and a transcript will be made available to the public at a later date.
Thus, to those that are speaking, speak clearly. Also if she has problems, and she's going to notify us, we're going to ask you to slow down or to repeat and try not to talk on top of each other.After consulting with publication specialists at the APA, OWL staff learned that the APA 6th edition, first printing sample papers have incorrect examples of running heads on pages after the title page.
