The Federal Investment in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology Education: Where Now? What Next? Report of the Expert Panel for the Review of Federal Education Programs in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology.
Federal Coordinating Council for Science, Engineering and Technology, Washington, DC.
Despite efforts to improve the quality and equity of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET) education at all educational levels, the nation remains at risk of losing its competitive edge. This report presents the findings of a special panel convened for two purposes: (1) to review federal programs in SMET education at all levels; and (2) to provide an assessment of federal program evaluation efforts. The panel's recommendations emphasize improved management and coordination of programs, more balanced distribution of existing funds, and comprehensive evaluation. Presented first are the panel's principal findings and recommendations related to each of the two types of issues identified by the panel: those that apply to SMET education as a whole and those that apply to specific areas of SMET education.
