The National Research Council has released its draft framework for new science standards. This is a major step toward a multi-state approach on an additional subject, though being developed by different groups and through a different process than the literacy and math standards. Check out the EdWeek coverage, the NRC announcement, and the actual framework document. Public comments will be taken through August 2--but the input form is not yet available on-line. I'll share thoughts when I've had time to read.
