Archive: Call to Action for Science Education: Building Opportunity for the Future, September 27, 2021

The Call to Action for Science Education-- released by a committee convened by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in mid-July and funded by the Carnegie Corporation --identifies effective science education practices and lays out major challenges for implementing a coherent K-16 science education program.  It calls on federal agencies, state and local governments, and other stakeholders to make science education a core national priority, and to provide local communities with the resources they need to deliver equitable science education and to track progress.

In this web seminar speakers will discuss the Call to Action, their vision of an equitable and cohesive science education system, and the critical role science teachers will have in this extraordinary community effort to transform science education.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.
