Successful K-12 STEM Education: Identifying Effective Approaches in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

The National Academies Press just posted a pre-release copy of a new STEM education report-  Successful K-12 STEM Education: Identifying Effective Approaches in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

The report details:

The Need to Improve STEM Learning

Goals for U.S. STEM Education

Three Types of Criteria to Identify Successful STEM Schools

Summary of Criteria to Identify Successful K-12 STEM Schools

What Schools and Districts Can Do to Support Effective K-12 STEM Education

What State and National Policy Makers Can Do to Support Effective K-12 STEM Education

The report promotes three broad goals for STEM success:

Goal 1: Expand the number of students who ultimately pursue advanced degrees and careers in STEM fields and broaden the participation of women and minorities in those fields.

Goal 2: Expand the STEM-capable workforce and broaden the participation of women and minorities in that workforce.

Goal 3: Increase STEM literacy for all students, including those who do not pursue STEM-related careers or additional study in the STEM disciplines.
