National Action Plan for Addressing the Critical Needs of the U.S. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education System

Abstract

"The National Science Board unveiled a national action plan for 21st century education in STEM--science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Top among the Board's recommendations are increased coordination of STEM education across the nation--including the formation of an independent, non-Federal National Council for STEM Education--and the preparation of an adequate supply of highly effective STEM teachers.



The Board's National Action Plan for Addressing the Critical Needs of the U.S. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education System will lay out strategies for collaboration among stakeholders from local, state and federal governments, as well as nongovernmental STEM education stakeholder groups to collaborate. Recommendations center on voluntary national STEM content guidelines, alignment of STEM learning across grade levels, increased STEM teacher compensation, and the role of higher education. The goal is to ensure that all American students receive the skills and knowledge required for success in the 21st Century."
