K-12 Oregon Science Standards Review
The Oregon Science Standards (Next Generation Science Standards) are based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council (NRC). This framework is a powerful document that provides background information and the latest research to improve science teaching and learning. A PDF version of the NRC Framework is available for free download on the National Academies Press website:

Oregon Department of Education - Equity Stance
Education equity is the equitable implementation of policy, practices, procedures, and legislation that translates into resource allocation, education rigor, and opportunities for historically and currently marginalized youth, students, and families including civil rights protected classes.
This means the restructuring and dismantling of systems and institutions that create the dichotomy of beneficiaries and the oppressed and marginalized.
