The National Research Council (NRC),with a grant from the Carnegie Corporation, is developing a conceptual framework that will guide new K–12 science education standards. A draft framework was released for public input last summer and a final document is slated for release this spring. Achieve, Inc., will then begin the process of drafting new science education standards based on this framework, with completion scheduled for 2012.
NSTA has been a collaborating partner with NRC and Achieve during the Framework development process. As we inch closer to new science standards, NSTA wants to know what you think.
