From the National Academies: Overview of the National Research Council's Board on Science Education and Personal Reflections as a Science Teacher
Wieman, Carl
Cell Biology Education, v4 n2 p118-120 Sum 2005
Over the past year, the National Academies have established a Board on Science Education (BOSE). This marks a major restructuring of the portion of the National Research Council (NRC) that deals with science education. As the first chair of BOSE, the author describes in this column the new structure and advantages of this board and discusses some of the agenda of BOSE that he thinks will be of interest to readers of "Cell Biology Education." He also discusses some unofficial, personal goals for BOSE that stimulated him to take the position as chair. (Contains 1 footnote.)
