An NSTA Position Statement: International Science Education and the National Science Teachers Association
National Science Teachers Association (NJ1)
The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) encourages and promotes international science education because it has the ability to improve the teaching and learning of science, as well as to "empower people, improve their quality of life, and increase their capacity to participate in the decision-making processes leading to social, cultural, and economic policies," as stated in UNESCO's (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's) human rights education mandate (UNESCO 2009). NSTA believes that international science education should be a priority for all science educators. To embrace international science education, NSTA offers several declarations. These declarations are presented in this paper.
