Science, Technology and Engineering in Pre-K

"We have to increase our expectations for little kids, which tend to be much too low," Karen Worth, the chair of elementary education at Wheelock College, said in a recent interview. In partnership with the Department of Early Education and Care, Worth is helping to revise the framework so that it aligns with the state K-12 standards and blends into the existing pre-k math and literacy curriculum frameworks.
