We must raise the bar in education and rethink the design of school if we want excellent math and science learning for all students. The Opportunity Equation report provides a roadmap for this vision with recommendations for key stakeholders.
Collaborative Effort Targets STEM Teacher Shortage
Can a joint effort of educators, private businesses, nonprofits, and government partners solve the teacher shortage in science, technology, engineering and math? That's the goal of 100Kin10, a movement created specifically to bring 100,000 more STEM teachers into classrooms over the next decade.
100Kin10 kicked off in January, after the Carnegie Corporation of New York and Opportunity Equation gathered a group of partners concerned about the nation's STEM literacy deficiency. Evidence shows that having excellent STEM teachers sets children up for success, so the group brainstormed how to best increase the number of qualified STEM teachers, and keep them from leaving the classroom.
Nine months later, the effort has the support of over 80 partners, including STEM heavyweights like NASA and Google, as well as major education players like the New York City Department of Education and Teach For America.
