The Case for STEM Education

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

If you’re an education leader concerned with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) initiatives, NSTA’s new book, The Case for STEM Education, will prove valuable reading. The book starts by helping you develop an understanding of the historical and contemporary contexts of the STEM reform and the challenges facing STEM education. The author then explores appropriate roles for the federal government as well as states, districts and individual schools. Finally, the book offers several ideas you can use to develop actual action plans for implementing STEM instruction.

Throughout the book, author Rodger W. Bybee puts an emphasis on both thinking and acting. That’s why The Case for STEM Education is a must-read for leaders at all levels: national and state policy makers, state-level educators responsible for STEM initiatives, college and university faculty who educate future STEM teachers, local administrators who make decisions about district and school programs, and teachers who represent STEM disciplines.
