Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)

 

 

In recent years, the United States has placed an increasing emphasis on maintaining a strong economy and national security by ensuring that its education system and workforce include skilled teachers and practitioners in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Several pieces of national legislation were proposed by Congress in 2013 to ensure an adequate supply of qualified STEM teachers and to encourage students, including women and other under-represented groups, to enter these fields.
