The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has adopted revised science standards. They are based on the Next Generation Science Standards, which is based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas (2012), from the National Research Council of the National Academies. Also see Benchmarks: American Association for the Advancement of Science from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
