A recent survey of 5,000 K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math teachers and supervisors found that 80 percent of respondents were familiar with the Next Generation Science Standards, and of those, 60 percent held a favorable view of them. Just 6 percent of all respondents had a negative impression of the standards. (Others had a neutral impression.)

The survey was conducted online in November and December 2014 by Interactive Educational Systems Design Inc., along with STEM Market Impact LLC and MCH Strategic Data.

The survey found that among respondents whose states had recently adopted new science standards either the Next Generation Science Standards or otherwise less than 10 percent planned to buy a new curriculum. Most said they will continue to use their existing curriculum, with some enhancements.
