Education Issue Brief: Accelerating STEM Education

Publication date: 
December, 2010

These two-page Issue Briefs describe the perspectives of FPN's Education Funders Affinity Group on key public education issues.

Improving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) education in Florida demands a systemic approach, addressing the continuum from teacher training and preparation, to classroom resources and curricula, to assessment and evaluation. We must focus on approaches that are grounded in research and change how and what teachers teach, making STEM a robust component of a balanced curriculum that results in students who can compete in a global, 21st-century economy.
