The U.S. has a big problem when it comes to STEM teachers: It desperately needs them in math, science, chemistry, physics and physical science – and it is also critically short in CTE areas and technology education. Since 2012, the federal government has emphasized building a STEM master teacher corps and recruiting and training an additional 100,000 STEM teachers over the next several years. From recruiting new teachers from industry to providing incentives for them to serve in high-need communities, this panel will highlight teacher prep programs that are working to up the ranks of qualified STEM teachers nationwide.
