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.”
