granted to “compensate for the loss of a military career” (DOD, 2006). To qualify for DOD disability compensation, a service-incurred or service-aggravated illness or injury must render a service member permanently unfit to perform the “duties of office, grade, rank, or rating” and must not be the result of “misconduct or willful neglect” (Howard, 2006). Disability is determined according to the effects that a condition has on a service member’s ability to perform according to military occupational specialty.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
