Interesting, but perhaps not as you might expect.  This document has made quite a stir with the ACM and CSTA because it apparently makes no mention of computer science.

Dear Colleague,

An opportunity is at hand for AAAS members to make a significant contribution to science education reform. As we noted in our 28 May 2010 editorial in Science, efforts are underway to move the nation toward a "clear statement of learning goals for science that are the same across states." A coherent set of learning goals is essential to the design of curriculum and assessment materials, and the scientific community needs to play an active role in the development process.

The Board on Science Education at the National Research Council has just released a draft<http://www.members-aaas.org/l.jsp?d=5326.591931.654.2a6ZPFCns> of a conceptual framework to guide the development of next generation standards for K-12 science education and your input is needed. We hope you will take the time to download and read the request from the NRC<http://www.members-aaas.org/l.jsp?d=5326.591930.654.2a6ZPFCns> and if at all possible to respond by August 2.


Alan I. Leshner, Shirley Malcom, and Jo Ellen Roseman
