  Trends in STEM, major insights on teaching

While 2018 was a momentous year for STEM education, 2019 is gearing up to be even bigger. 100Kin10 is a national network focusing on improving STEM education by adding 100,000 highly-qualified STEM teachers to U.S. classrooms by 2021. The organization's annual report Annual Report released last month compiles thousands of data points that predict trends that will define STEM and education in the year ahead. Of note in this year's report: Perceptions of teaching will improve in 2019; Teacher shortages will continue to strain the system, but solutions are possible; More schools will become places where students and teachers thrive; Teachers are hungry for more resources for Next Generation Science Standards; and STEM is engineering the future workforce and will lead schools to a "whole-child" approach to education. We encourage you take a look at this year's study and see what you think. Please enjoy your NC STEM e-Update.
