Change the Equation releases report
leaders in Missouri have sounded an alarm. They cannot find the science,
technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) talent they need to stay
competitive. Student's lagging performance in school is why. To address this
challenge, Missouri is raising the bar. The state has joined 44 others in
adopting rigorous math standards for K-12 - Common Core State Standards -
and it is working with other states to create robust tests aligned to those
standards. A national STEM group, Change the Equation, has released a report
to show where Missouri now stands.
