She hits on elementary basic skills. As a middle school teacher this would have problems as is noted for NGSS's bundling. Yes multiple exposures is best practice yet with upper sciences you end up going a mile wide and an inch deep. You would be hard pressed to know just what a student knows when trying to place them into, say, Chem 102 or 102 or 100. NGSS for middle and high school is too rich and vast to spiral. Can't speak to elementary. Math is a different animal as the skills often build upon each other and are "reused." Get the basic chem, bio, physics. Then in upper grades show connections of how chem uses the bio and physics for example.
