Stephanie Couch on STEM Education in California

  1. While the acronym STEM is powerful, unfortunately it really boils down to mathematics instruction in California schools, as LEA’s scramble to prepare pupils for narrowly focused accountability exams (which focus on math and English, not science, history, social science or career technology). I hope school officials will recognize the real value of STEM programs is their hands-on, real-world revelant instrucational approach, and not simply morph STEM programs into math remediation courses (to “Race to the Test”).
