The American Association of Physics Teachers issued a statement on July 29 urging adoption and implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards. Following is an except from that statement:

“The American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) supports the adoption and implementation of common, nationwide science education standards to provide a coherent science and engineering education program for all K-12 students, not just those aiming for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. The Association supports the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as a guide for the development of assessments for grade-level and grade-band measures of student performance in science and engineering and the Association urges states to adopt and implement the NGSS.”
