In a statement released earlier today, NSTA welcomed the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) calling it an opportunity to transform K–12 science education by changing the way science is taught and learned in classrooms around the country. NSTA encourages all states to adopt the NGSS and begin implementing the standards in classrooms and schools across the country.
“The Next Generation Science Standards establishes clear educational goals that can give students the skills and knowledge they need to be informed citizens, college ready, and prepared for STEM careers,” said Dr. David Evans, NSTA Executive Director. “All students—from Maine to California—deserve access to the best science and STEM education and these standards that will be consistent from state-to-state have the potential to make that happen.”
