Intermediate analyses, reviews, and feedback from the projects and sites as well as from outside consultants; final analyses; and writing of each case and this cross-case volume consumed the third year (1994-95).

Although California’s development of its Science Framework preceded these federal initiatives, it illustrates this particular reform direction: The implementation of the Framework’s vision through the several teacher networks California has set up, as chronicled in our case study, was aided considerably by 30 The General Context for Reform NSF support under the State Systemic Initiative (SSI) program.
