The 2015 Business Report: National Survey STEM Education, from IESD, Inc. and STEM Market Impact, surveyed 5,002 K-12 district and school science and STEM supervisors and teachers online.

About 80 percent of respondents said they were familiar with the NGSS. Of those familiar with the standards, 6 percent reported a negative impression.
