NSF is funding geographic literacy efforts in US

National Science Foundation (NSF) is funding more efforts to combat the lack of geographic literacy for children in the US.

According to the National Geographic, “[t]he National Geographic Society has received a two-year, $2.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation entitled “Establishing a Road Map for Large-Scale Improvement of K-12 Education in the Geographical Sciences.” National Geographic and three national organizations — the Association of American Geographers, the American Geographical Society and the National Council for Geographic Education — will work together in an unprecedented effort to develop a 10-year strategic plan for geographic education in the United States.”
