Business leaders in Wisconsin 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. Wisconsin students have made some progress in math over the past decade. Yet not enough students–least of all minorities–are getting exposed to challenging content to prepare them for college and careers. For example, few eighth graders have teachers with undergraduate majors in math or science. The good news is that those teachers are much more likely than teachers in other states to say they have the resources they need, though black students are least likely to have access to such teachers.
