Monitoring Progress Toward Successful K-12 STEM Education

November 17, 2012 |  Benjamin Morrison

The National Research Council (NRC) released a report, "Monitoring Progress Toward Successful K-12 STEM Education." The report builds on previous work in this area, and establishes key indicators for measuring improvements to the K-12 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education system.

The report recognizes the important foundation laid in elementary school and sets out three goals for U.S. K-12 STEM education:

  • Expand the number of students who ultimately pursue advanced degrees and careers in STEM fields, and broaden the participation of women and minorities,
  • Expand the STEM-capable workforce and broaden the participation of women and minorities, and
  • Increase science literacy for all students
