Business leaders in Nevada 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 ost effective STEM education programs can help turn the tide. Nevada students have made real progress in math over the past decade, though they have lost ground in recent years. Not enough students–least of all minorities–have the chance to learn challenging content to prepare them for college and careers, and few eighth-graders have teachers with an undergraduate major in math or science. Science teachers of low-income, black and Hispanic students are most likely to say they don’t have the resources they need, and their schools are most likely to lack facilities and materials for science instruction.
