According to an Ed Week blog by Liana Heitin, a recent survey of 5,000 K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers and supervisors found that 80 percent of those responding said they were familiar with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and of those, 60 percent held a favorable view of them.
Only 6 percent of all respondents had a negative impression of the NGSS.
The 2015 Business Report: National Survey STEM Education, was conducted online in November and December 2014 by Interactive Educational Systems Design, Inc., along with STEM Market Impact, LLC, and MCH Strategic Data. The study asked about schools’ STEM courses and programs, teacher professional development, and the availability of digital materials.
