Bybee, Rodger W. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2011
Does the nation need K-12 engineering education standards? The answer to this question is paradoxically both simple and complex, and requires an examination of a rationale for such standards as well as the opportunities and barriers to developing and implementing the standards. In two decades since 1989, the idea of national standards for…

Moye, Johnny J.; Katsioloudis, Petros J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2011
Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. One does not have to be a historian to realize the truth in those words. It is true of words written years ago concerning the health and well being of the technology and engineering education profession. M. Ray Karnes (1959) published "A Major Problem in Education: Improve or Perish"…
