The New Jersey Department of Education is announcing that it will be taking public comment on revisions to the Core Curriculum Content Standards.Dept. of Education
Changes are coming to how New Jersey public schools teach science, thanks to a review of the core curriculum.
Every five years, the state reviews the nine subjects in the curriculum. No changes are planned for English and math, last updated in 2010 to reflect the standards developed by New Jersey and several other states.
New science lessons could include "wave technology" and some engineering.
