STEM education will carry our children in tomorrow’s economy

The Hill – David Evans and Talia Milgrom-Elcott

“American students should be able to compete with kids from anywhere in the world, because when they graduate from high school, technical school, or college, that’s who they’ll be measured against. In this global economy, one of the most effective ways to set our children up for success is to ensure they receive excellent STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education. As you may have heard, there are a lot of jobs to be found in STEM fields: indeed, ten of the top 14 fastest-growing industries require STEM training. But STEM is more than a specific set of classes or subjects. STEM education teaches kids how to think critically and solve problems: valuable skills they’ll need to succeed in school, work, and life. Teenagers taking algebra need to understand why it matters and how they might use it in real life.”(more)
