New resource: NGSS and setting graduation requirements
Your state board has adopted Next Generation Science Standards, but now it's tasked with setting graduation requirements that support the vision of NGSS. NASBE's newest policy update, Graduation Requirements and the Next Generation Science Standards, highlights the trends in setting science graduation requirements and the steps state board members should take to review and revise them. "[NGSS presents an] opportunity for states to develop a vision for science education," writes NASBE's Francis Eberle. "Articulating the state's aspirations for student learning in science will help schools and students make a smoother transition to the NGSS."
