BSA on TWTR (@Botanical_) points out that the Next Generation Science Standards are open for comment. Don't know what the Next Generation Science Standards are? Here's how the home page of the project developing them describes the project:
Next Generation Science Standards for Today's Students and Tomorrow's Workforce: Through a collaborative, state-led process managed by Achieve, new K-12 science standards are being developed that will be rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education. The NGSS will be based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council.The standards themselves and instructions on how to provide feedback are available at http://www.nextgenscience.org/next-generation-science-standards. Comments are welcome until 29 January 2013.
