The draft Next Generation Science Standards are ready for review: www.nextgenscience.org

This first draft will be open to public comment from anyone in the United States– including Kansas and Missouri — until June 1.

Kansas is one of 26 states with committees contributing to development of this draft. Matt Krehbiel, a staff member with the Kansas State Department of Education, is coordinating Kansas’ committee, which is composed of educators and representatives of science-related businesses.

The Next Generation Science Standards — which are scheduled for completion later this year –are based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education published last summer by the National Research Council. A team of nationally and internationally recognized scientists — including two Nobel laureates — collaborated in developing this document, which is available to download free of charge from The National Academies Press.
