Daugherty, Michael K. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2013
STEM education has since become perhaps the largest reform movement in PK-12 education over the last decade. The rationale for increased emphasis in STEM education is driven largely by lackluster national assessments of PK-12 students over the last decade or two. These assessments continue to indicate that the United States is failing to compete…
