Last Friday I attended the joint meeting of the Minnesota Council of
Teachers of Mathematics and the Minnesota Science Teachers Association.
At that meeting I acquired a copy of a review draft of National Science
Education Standards (Nov. 1994) published by National Academy Press of
the National Academy of Science. I cannot vouch for the content as I
have not had time to even glance through the 2 cm thick document, but it
clearly exists. I imagine that a final product is planned for the near
future but have no idea of the timeline.

Hope that this is helpful.
