Business leaders in Nebraska 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. Nebraska students have made some progress in math over the past decade. While student performance on national tests of math and science is generally on par with national averages, the racial and ethnic achievement gaps in the state are wider. Not enough students–least of all minorities–get the chance to learn challenging content that prepares them for college and careers.
