Title:Building a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) agenda
Organization:National Governors Association
Short Description:The K–12 (kindergarten through grade 12) education system, with the support of postsecondary education, the business sector, foundations, and government, must ensure that 1) all students graduate from high school with STEM competencies to become this workforce; and 2) a greater number of students graduate from high school as potential professionals in STEM fields.
Annotation:The global economy has “flattened” the world in terms of skills and technology. A new workforce of problem-solvers, innovators, and inventors who are self-reliant and able to think logically is one of the critical foundations that drive innovative capacity in a state. The K–12 (kindergarten through grade 12) education system, with the support of postsecondary education, the business sector, foundations, and government, must ensure that 1) all students graduate from high school with STEM competencies to become this workforce; and 2) a greater number of students graduate from high school as potential professionals in STEM fields.
