Biggest Challenges Facing K–12 STEM Ed: PD, Accountability Systems, CS Curricula

July 13, 2017

THE Journal features a piece on the grand challenges system map, created from 2+ years of research and analysis with the support of the 100Kin10 network:

“The resulting “Grand Challenges” interactive map is a two-year project from 100Kin10, a nonprofit with the ambitious goal of training 100,000 teachers in 10 years (by 2021). To identify and map the 100-plus challenges, 100Kin10 conducted extensive background research leveraging the support of its network — including surveys with thousands of teachers, principals, nonprofit leaders, researchers, policymakers, union representatives and other education stakeholders. In addition, complexity and mapping scientists as well as strategists across the business and tech sectors contributed to the analysis, according to a prepared statement from 100Kin10.

“This roadmap will allow us to mobilize 100Kin10 partners to address the root causes of the STEM teacher shortage head-on, and in doing so, help ensure America remains a beacon of innovation and competitiveness for generations to come,” said Talia Milgrom-Elcott, executive director and co-founder of 100Kin10.”
