Connecticut's Colchester Public Schools: Modern Science Standards That Refute Naturopathy's Central Premise

here, the Next Generation Science Standards that expressly contradict naturopathy's core premise:

001. hosts the National Academies Press publication, authored by authored by the Board on Science Education's Committee on a Conceptual Framework for New K-12 Science Education Standards, "A Framework for K-12 Science Education Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas" [2016 archived; 2012 NAP], which states:

"science is replete with ideas that once seemed promising but have not withstood the test of time, such as the concept of the 'ether' or the vis vitalis (the 'vital force' of life)"; 

meanwhile, naturopathy falsely poses such as science, even at .gov outlets.  The Colchester public high school is Bacon Academy.  A Board of Education document, "Colchester Board of Education Meeting Agenda Date: Tuesday, May 10, 2016", states: "on November 4, 2015, the CT State Board of Education unanimously approved the Next Generation Science Standards for our state. Tonight two science teachers, Jill
Levasseur, of Bacon Academy, and Kristina Ngai, of William Johnston, will join me in
explaining what the new standards are and how Colchester will be moving toward
implementation of changes in practice, disciplinary core content, and crosscutting
concepts."  And it's amazing: the State of Connecticut's science standards expressly point out that the naturopathy's school in the state of Connecticut actually using the categorical label "science" upon naturopathy, is in violation of the NGSS by way of their "vital force" [see p. 332] essential premise.
