STEM Solution Not Rocket Science
Tom Luce, the board chair of NMSI, says that the fight in STEM has shifted. A few years back you couldn't get anyone to admit there was a problem, today you can't get them to admit there are solutions that work. The chart above shows the number of successful African Americans and Hispanics on mathematics, science and English AP exams since AP Strategies and Laying the Foundation have been working. That is a 1080% increase with a 1666% increase for Hispanic students.
We have found the STEM solution - we just need to implement it in more places!
