While the National Research Council spearheads the development of science education standards at the national level, many states have been operating on parallel tracks and have developed state curriculum frameworks. This article describes the state frameworks from California, Florida, and New York, titled "Science Framework for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve", "Science For All Students: The Florida Pre K-12 Science Curriculum Framework", and "Framework for Mathematics, Science, and Technology," respectively. Expectations for science programs and content questions from the California framework, underlying principles and characteristics of the Florida framework, and general principles for learning in the New York framework are listed. The importance of the Science Technology Society (STS) movement in these frameworks is discussed. Information on how to get copies of published frameworks is provided. (JRH)
