The President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) just released their report about how to improve pre-college STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education in the U.S.
The PCAST committee suggests seven ways to improve U.S. STEM education:
(1) STANDARDS: SUPPORT THE CURRENT STATE-LED MOVEMENT FOR SHARED STANDARDS IN MATH AND SCIENCE
(2) TEACHERS: RECRUIT AND TRAIN 100,000 GREAT STEM TEACHERS OVER THE NEXT DECADE WHO ARE ABLE TO PREPARE AND INSPIRE STUDENTS
