The globalization of the American economy has increased the need for a workforce prepared for new and emerging high-skill, high-wage, and high-demand careers. Preparing every student to be college and career ready and ensuring successful postsecondary credential, certificate, or degree attainment is critical to meeting the current skills gap, especially in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
Learning how to help students meet the challenges in this changing world is vital not only to their success as individuals but also to society at large.
