The Future of STEM Education: An Analysis of Two National Reports
Raju, P. K.; Clayson, Ashley
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v11 n5-6 p25-28 Oct-Dec 2010
This article presents an analysis of two major reports discussing the current crisis in STEM education. Both the National Science Board (NSB) and the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) reported alarming facts and figures about the United States' position in the global knowledge economy. The U.S. is no longer competing as it has in the past in STEM fields internationally--the result of falling interest and performance in STEM education. Both reports propose several programs and projects to tackle this increasing problem.
