The Coalition of State Bioscience Institutes (CSBI), a national collation of 42 state bioscience organizations and the Biotechnology Institute, has endorsed the Next Generation Science Standards. According to the statement released on December 4, “Building the talent pool for our nation and our companies requires the development and adoption in every state of internationally-benchmarked standards for student success. We strongly support local initiatives to update science learning standards to improve student achievement including adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards, which are based on the National Research Council’s Framework for K–12 Science Education. These standards will provide all students with a coherent and content-rich science education that will prepare them for college and careers.”
