Our national objective is to ensure that new opportunities “are not just for the biggest cities, or for people with advanced degrees or good connections. Everyone needs to have a stake in this innovation-fueled economy.”
He concluded by saying that “what is true for communities within the United States is also true for relationships between countries.” The benefits of global economic growth over the past few decades have not accrued equally to everyone, he said, “but we’re confident that the President’s strategy for American innovation, as well as other forms of engagement, will help broaden opportunities for those who have not yet had them.”

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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