The state board of education in California voted last week to adopt the Next Generation Science Standards, bringing to six the number of states to take such action.

California, the nation's most populous state, joins Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Vermont. (However, in Kentucky, the standards are still in the midst of a regulatory process that includes legislative review.)

All those states were among the 26 "lead state partners" that worked with several national organizations to develop the standards.
