School and Educator Programs
The Alliance has compiled this set of school and educator resources from throughout the nonprofit and museum sector.
The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) has links to each state’s education agency where museum educators can access state curriculum standards. Museum educators may also find the articles, policy briefs, and reports in the Education Issues section of value.
The National Park Service (NPS) offers resources to help museums create lesson plans for teaching with historic places.
The U.S. Department of Education has information about federal legislation and regulations. It also has research reports and statistics that may be useful to museum educators.
