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.
Vancouver school district to open new STEM school in the fall
A new magnet school focusing on science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, is slated to open in Vancouver Public Schools in September, depending on the state's budget situation.
The district boasts a curriculum that integrates art and design principles, as well as problem-solving and hands-on activities. The school will be open to students from sixth to twelfth grades.
"We envision this STEM magnet as a 'laboratory' school that not only will help drive our economic engine in the region but also further the research of best practices in education," said Anne Kennedy, director of STEM education at Education Service District 112.
