Title:Into the eye of the storm: Assessing the evidence on science and engineering education, quality, and workforce demand
Organization:Urban Institute
Short Description:This paper examines assumptions about the educational pipeline and purported workforce shortages.
Annotation:This paper examines assumptions about the state of the educational pipeline and purported workforce shortages. Despite the nearly universal support for upgrading science and math education, this data review leads the authors to conclude that, while the educational pipeline would benefit from improvements, it is not as dysfunctional as believed. Today's American high school students actually test as well or better than students two decades ago. Further, this study reports that current students take more science and math classes, and a large number of students with strong science and math backgrounds graduate from U.S. high schools and begin college in science and engineering fields of study.
