STEM: Science Technology Engineering Mathematics. Executive Summary
Carnevale, Anthony P.; Smith, Nicole; Melton, Michelle
Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) occupations are critical to the nation's continued economic competitiveness because of their direct ties to innovation, economic growth, and productivity, even though they will only be 5 percent of all jobs in the U.S. economy by 2018. The disproportionate influence of STEM raises a persistent concern that the nation is not producing enough STEM workers to compete successfully in the global economy. The authors find that this concern is warranted--but not for the reasons traditionally claimed. This report discusses what it takes to help advance STEM in the country. (Contains 21 footnotes.) [For the full report, "STEM: Science Technology Engineering Mathematics," see ED525297.]
