The State of Middle School and High School Science Labs in the Kansas City Region

A new study from the Ewing Marion Kauffmann Foundation finds that the majority of school science labs in the Kansas City area do not meet national standards for safety and are not being used effectively to enhance instruction and learning. Part of a ten-year, multimillion dollar initiative to improve student achievement in math, engineering, technology, and science, the report, The State of Middle School and High School Science Labs in the Kansas City Region (32 pages, PDF), offers recommendations for improving facilities and the quality of science laboratory education in the greater Kansas City area.
