Business Partnerships to Advance STEM Talent: Building a Bridge to Homegrown STEM Talent

The Committee for Economic Development, in partnership with José Martí MAST 6-12 Academy and others have released the issue brief "Business Partnerships to Advance STEM Talent: Building a Bridge to Homegrown STEM Talent."

From the Brief:
The American Association for School Administrators has stated that “Educators and business leaders share common goals and challenges; both manage large complex organizations and want to ensure that students graduate high school prepared” to take on the jobs which will keep them and the nation productive and competitive. They call this “Mission Critical” for the country. This mutual goal has motivated many organizations and businesses to invest in the nation’s public school system to support and equip students for college, work, and more importantly, the diverse and ever-changing life ahead of them.
Growing at an astounding and unprecedented pace of three times faster than other jobs in the rest of the US economy, STEM related careers are projected to have nearly 230,000 jobs that will go unfilled by 2018 due to the lack of STEM trained professionals (Barquin & Henry, 2013).
