It’s no secret that U.S. students lag behind many developed nations in mathematical proficiency, and that our country could be doing a lot more to close that gap––for example, recognizing the critical role of early mathematics education in children’s long-term success, acknowledging the inequities in the current system, and seeking change by employing solutions that can improve educational practices on a large scale.
In this Q&A, we invite grantee 100Kin10 network to share highlights about its work to prepare 100,000 STEM teachers from pre-K through Grade 12––including a focused initiative to advance early math learning, and a new vision for the future of STEM education that centers the voices and experiences of diverse learners. 100Kin10 is supported by the Heising-Simons Foundation’s Education program.
Briefly tell us about the 100kin10 network’s effort to bring 100,000 teachers into the STEM education field. How has the network worked over the past 10 years to catalyze change?
