NSTA Position Statement on Multicultural Science Education

NSTA Position Statement on Multicultural Science Education

Members of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) are aware that a country's welfare is ultimately dependent upon the productivity of all of its people. Many institutions and organizations in our global, multicultural society play major roles in establishing environments in which unity in diversity flourishes. Members of the NSTA believe science literacy must be a major goal of science education institutions and agencies. The belief that ALL children can learn and be successful in science should move instructors away from the sieve approach to tracking students in science.
