Join OERC Researcher, Dr. Stéphane Lavertu, for an informative dialogue about STEM education on March 24, 2015.
Policymakers generally agree that promoting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education will improve students’ educational achievement and attainment in STEM subjects, leading to better paying jobs and overall economic growth. Ohio government and private, non-profit organizations have sought to improve STEM education, in part by establishing non-selective STEM high schools. But are these STEM high schools having a positive impact on student achievement in math and science? This session will provide an answer to that question.
