can save lives as well as resources. Collaborations have the potential to contribute to the continuing development of universities as contexts in which faculty and students can achieve a global perspective. And for all their obstacles (discussed below), international collaborations certainly surpass the alternative of “hit-and-run research,” or limiting one’s perspective to one’s own “well”—in both the quality of their immediate outcomes and the contributions they can make to the behavioral and social sciences.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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.
