Refueling the U.S. Innovation Economy: Fresh Approaches to STEM Education

Abstract

"Is the United States getting it wrong when it comes to educating tomorrow's innovators in critical fields? We have known for years that the only way to compete globally in information technology, engineering, nanotechnology, robotics and other fields is to give our students the best educational opportunities possible. But do we have a successful formula when it comes to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education? In a provocative new report, ITIF President Robert D. Atkinson and education expert Merrilea Mayo, Ph.D., challenge our approach to STEM education and argue that reforms are urgently needed to better match the talents of students, the needs of employers, and our goals as a nation."
