Chryssie: My son is in 4th grade at a PA public school where Science and Social Studies is taught only ‘if’ there is time, which is close to never. The ELA and Math curriculums (books) include limited amounts of the science and social studies topics. The school’s focus is on PSSA ELA and Math prep. Is there any wording in School code/law that says public school systems (elementary schools) need to (or must) provide science and social studies instruction? If so, what are the specifics? Would FAPE include the lack of science and social studies instruction?
