The National Research Council is coordinating the development of national standards for science education in grades K through 12. By the fall of 1994, National Science Education Standards will be completed and published. The standards will contain narrative descriptions of what all students should be able to do to engage and understand the natural world. The standards will address science curriculum, teaching, and assessment and will represent the consensus of teachers and other science educators, scientists, and the general public. Chapters include: (1) Introduction; (2) "The Goals of School Science Education"; (3) "The Character of School Science"; and (4) "The Standards for School Science." (PR)
