Indicators of K-12 Geoscience Education

As part of our effort to enhance geosciences education awareness, the American Geosciences Institute collects science education data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and summarizes the data into reports at the elementary and secondary levels. The data and reports are available here. The data and reports provide geosciences education indicators pertaining to teacher preparation, curriculum, instruction, learning contexts, extra-curricular programs, monitoring systems, and accountability.
