In a competitive and increasingly knowledge-based global economy, students must have the skills and education necessary to succeed.
The recently released Next Generation Science Standards represent a collaborative, state-led effort to develop comprehensive and integrated science curriculum standards for grades K-12 across the nation. Twenty-six partner states, in conjunction with the National Research Council, have collaborated to design an internationally benchmarked education framework based on the most current research in science and science-learning.
Please consider expressing your support for strong science standards. It will only take a minute to send a letter to your governor about the importance of adopting the Next Generation Science Standards.
