CONTEXTUALIZING DEFINITIONAL ISSUES
The committee emphasizes that all of the crimes covered by the terms commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors reflect exploitation of children and adolescents and merit attention, even though, as discussed in Chapter 1, some of these important issues are beyond the scope of this study. The committee also believes it is important to recognize and understand commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors as forms of child abuse. See Figure A-4.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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