Since their publication in 1996, the National
Science Education Standards (NSES) have been
at the center of the science education reform
movement in the United States. Prior to that
time, the National Science Foundation, other
government agencies, and private foundations
had supported the development of a plethora of
curricula and approaches to instruction; these
led to such R&D organizations as the Biological
Sciences Curriculum Study, the Chemical Bond
Approach, and the Physical Science Study
Education should be free and compulsory
as school fees often pose insurmountable
blocks to children receiving an education.
When poor families are forced to make
difficult choices about household expendi-
tures, school is often the first thing
dropped, and daughters are often the

planned educational reform strategies.
School setting: Skills-based health education and life skills can and have been incorporated
in many settings and for a wide range of target groups. In this document, we focus on

education in the curriculum and in various extra-curricular efforts. Special programmes for
students and parents, peer education and counselling programmes, and school/community
programmes offer ways for students to apply and practise what they learn.

(CADMEF), most have gone several decades without evaluation; the schools perceive no link between
evaluation and educational reform.
