Business leaders in Michigan cannot find the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) talent they need to stay competitive. Students’ lagging performance in K-12 is a critical reason why. The good news is that the nation’s most effective STEM education programs can help turn the tide. Yet there is much work to do. Students have made little progress in math since 2003, and racial achievement gaps loom large. As it stands, not enough students–least of all minorities–have the chance to learn rich and challenging content that prepares them for college and careers, and math and science teachers say they lack the resources to succeed.
