On October 11, 2011 the NCSLA Board of Directors unanimously approved a statement putting forth the position that “North Carolina must align both the content of the Essential Science Standards and its implementation schedule with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) anticipated release in 2012” to prepare a scientifically literate citizenry and uphold our state’s history of leading education reform. Science education in North Carolina would benefit tremendously through NCDPI’s alignment with this recommendation, which supports our state’s belief in collaboration, fiscal responsibility, and sound science education policy for all.
