Business leaders in New York 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. New York students have made some progress in math over the past decade, yet not enough students–least of all minority students–have the chance to learn challenging content to prepare them for college and careers. Too many of the state’s math and science teachers say they don’t have the resources they need to succeed. Again, Black and Latino students bear the brunt of this problem.
