Much of the work being done on the local and national level in health education, physical education, and family and consumer sciences education uses national standards to some extent. The following pages show “matches” between the Massachusetts Health Curriculum Framework Guiding Principles (GP) and the National Standards in Health Education, Physical Education, and Family and Consumer Sciences Education.
