Recommendation 12: Congress, through the budgetary process, should develop a strategy for transitioning NASA experimental satellite sensors to operational systems with assured data continuity so that the Nation’s investment in remote sensing can be utilized over the long term by other federal agencies and users.
Recommendation 13: Water agencies should be alert for opportunities to incorporate new sensor and modeling technologies that will allow them to better deliver their mission and be more productive.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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