New report offers roadmap for success in K-12 STEM education

uctional time and resources to science in grades K-5.

  • Ensure that their STEM curricula are focused on the most important topics in each discipline, are rigorous, and are articulated as a sequence of topics and performances.

  • Enhance the capacity of K-12 teachers.

  • Provide instructional leaders with professional development that helps them create the school conditions that appear to support student achievement.

    Educational organizations and policy makers at the state and national levels should:

    • Elevate science to the same level of importance as reading and mathematics.

    • Develop effective systems of assessment that are aligned with the next generation of science standards and that emphasize science practices rather than mere factual recall.

    • Invest in a coherent, focused, and sustained set of support for STEM teachers.

    • Support key areas for future research.

    "NSF appreciates Chairman Wolf's deep interest in improving K-12 STEM education," said Subra Suresh, NSF director. "This report, developed at Rep. Wolf's request, is a resource that will be very useful to all involved in STEM education--from policy makers to teachers to education researchers. The report's findings will be shared with these groups in the months ahead and will guide future research in the field."

    "The National Research Council, through leading education researchers, has done a thorough job of identifying evidence-based directions for successful K-12 STEM education," said Joan Ferrini-Mundy, NSF assistant director for Education and Human Resources. "This report will guide a number of follow-up and implementation activities to bring the results to practitioners, state and local STEM education leaders, and others.
