The New Wave of STEM-Focused Schools

Presented by Education Week

Register now for this free live webinar.At a time of heightened national attention to improving education in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the development of STEM-focused schools has rapidly gained momentum across the country as a strategy to boost knowledge and interest in the subjects.While STEM schools historically have tended to target the top math and science students in a state or district, the new wave appears to have a broader reach, with many of the schools aimed especially at serving populations underrepresented in the STEM fields, such as African-American, Hispanic, female, and low-income students.This webinar, featuring a national researcher and the principal of a STEM-focused high school in Texas, will explore the rationale for STEM schools, what they are, and what they look like in practice. It also will examine the promise they hold for improved learning, as well as some of the challenges of finding success.
