Business leaders in Oregon 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. Oregon students have made small gains in math over the past decade, and few eighth graders have teachers with undergraduate majors in the subject. Elementary students spend little time on science, and too many Oregon teachers lack access to science facilities and resources.
