Development of K-12 Behavioral and Social Science Education

January 24, 2011 873

The National Academies of Sciences will be hosting a planning meeting in the Fall of 2011 to look at the feasibility of developing a framework for elementary and secondary school education in Behavioral and Social Sciences.

The National Academies is awarding “modest” internal funding to DBASSE to organize a “planning meeting to assess the feasibility of a full panel study of frameworks for social and behavioral science education in the elementary and secondary grades.” Readers of this news report will recall that FABBS joined with a number of behavioral and social science societies in 2010 to call on the NAS to include all areas of science in its project to develop a conceptual framework for new science education standards.

FABBS promotes human potential and well-being by advancing the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. As a coalition of scientific societies, we communicate with policy makers and the public about the importance and contributions of basic and applied research in these sciences.
