Standards support by engineers, mathematicians, scientists

Within the past two weeks there was some discussion concerning whether
there was support for the NCTM Curriculum Standards by mathematicians,
engineers, scientists, et al. I recall that there was a list of
mathematical science organizations that endorsed the document including,
among others: American Mathematical Society, American Statistical
Association, Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences, Council of
Scientific Society Presidents, Mathematical Association of America,
Operations Research Society of America, and the Society for Industrial
and Applied Mathematics. There were also other professional organizations
that joined in supporting the quality mathematics curricula criteria,
including, but not limited to: American Chemical Society, Junior Engineering
Technical Society, and the National Society of Professional Engineers.
So, the movement has certainly not been limited to school educators.
