Science, Technology, Engineering and Math: Education for Global Leadership
This page from the US Department of Education lays out the case for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. Readers will likely be interested to learn that some STEM fields are predicted to increase by a third and more this decade. Still, only 16 percent of American high school seniors are proficient in math and interested in STEM careers, and the nation suffers from a paucity of qualified math and science teachers. These facts and others can be found here, in addition to a number of links that will take readers around the web, from President Obama’s plan to expand STEM education to the site for The Committee on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Education. For readers who are interested in STEM education, there is much to ponder on this interesting site. This will be added to Education and Academic Resources Subject Tracer™.
