ACS Division of Chemical Education Support for the NGSS

The American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Education has issued a unanimous resolution in support of the NGSS:

The Division of Chemical Education recognizes the achievement that is present in the Next Generation Science Standards, including their basis in research on teaching and learning, their formulation as performance standards, and their basis in the NRC framework and its dimensions of Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Cross Cutting Concepts.  We endorse the Standards as a document that is broadly applicable as a basis for K-12 science instruction and call upon the Division to develop innovative programming to support the implementation of the Standards.
