Technology and engineering education continues to evolve as it becomes more apparent that students need this information to become more successful in college and careers. The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA ) has tracked the status of technology education in the United States in three separate studies over the past decade with the research undertaken by its Technology for All Americans Project staff. ITEEA used the Zoomerang online survey platform to send questionnaires to each state supervisor (or representative) in November 2011. A follow-up request for supervisors to take the survey was sent in December. In December and January 2012, the researchers conducted follow-up telephone calls to nonrespondents. This 2011-12 study provided a fourth inquiry into that research, with engineering education being added as a curriculum area along with technology education. This article discusses the results of the fourth research study pertaining to the status of technology and engineering education in the U.S.
