About: Geography for Life: The National Geography Standards, Second Edition represent the consensus of the geography education community around what students should know and be able to do by the time they graduate from the 12th grade. While every state has adopted geography curriculum standards based on Geography for Life, most students in the United States will not have had enough explicit geography instruction to meet all of these standards unless or until they enroll in an undergraduate program. This publication can guide curriculum developers, K-12 teachers, and parents in helping to mitigate this problematic situation by making every effort to increase their own understanding of the value and power of a geographic education.  Note: Geography for Life was first published in 1994 by the Geography Education National Implementation Project (GENIP). The second edition was released in 2012.  

About the Geography Education Implementation Project (GENIP): GENIP is a consortium of the National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE), the National Geographic Society (NGS), the Association of American Geographers (AAG), and the American Geographical Society (AGS).
