author: Project 2061
description: "Not one of the widely used science textbooks for middle school was rated satisfactory by Project 2061, the long-term science, mathematics, and technology education reform initiative of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). And the new crop of texts that have just entered the market fared no better in the evaluation." This press release from Project 2061 summarizes the group's findings from their study of middle-school science instructional materials. The textbook evaluation was released September 28.
