K-12 Teachers of Engineering in U.S. Lack Needed Preparation and Support from Education System
A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine says there is a growing mismatch between the need for engineering-literate K-12 educators and the capacity of the U.S. education system to prepare and support these professionals. In addition, there are very few postsecondary programs that educate prospective K-12 teachers of engineering, and the professional development experiences through which the bulk of this current workforce learned what they know about engineering and how to teach it vary in duration, scope, and effectiveness. Building Capacity for Teaching Engineering in K-12 Education ...
