inevitable result of going from adventure to public service. We enter the prediction arena at a high price; our failures (and there have been many) will now be publicly vented. My plea to NSF for the next 50 years is to support a few "curiosities" and other high-risk ventures and to retain a tolerance for failure.
I thank L. Armi, M. Hendershott, R. Knox, J. Layton, P. Niiler, J. Reid, and C. Wunsch for discussions, but the (very limited) selection of achievements reported here is entirely mine.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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.
