To be, or not to be: that is the Question:
Whether ’tis Nobler in the Mind to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of Troubles,
And by opposing end them; to die to sleep
No more, and by a Sleep to say we end
The Hart-ache, and the thousand Natural Shocks
That Flesh is heir to; ’tis a Consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d to die to sleep,
To Sleep, perchance to dream; ay there’s the
For in that Sleep of Death what Dreams may

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
