Future of STEM Education Policy: National Perspectives and Minnesota Impact

CEHD's policy breakfast series brings a research focus to the conversation about closing Minnesota's achievement gap. Five policy breakfast events will examine the role of school leadership, early childhood education, reading and literacy, STEM education, and teacher preparation. Each event discusses the ways CEHD research can inform Minnesota's education policy.

As the US moves toward implementing the Next Generation Science Standards and Minnesota reviews them, how can we embrace these developments and help inform policy decisions? What are the implications of the recent national reports such as A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas, Developing Assessments for the Next Generation Science Standards, and STEM Integration in K-12 Education: Status, Prospects, and an Agenda for Research for reducing the achievement gap? What sort of policy support can help move them into widespread use? Join us for a discussion of NGSS, STEM integration, and Minnesota's assessment policy.

Dr. Heidi Schweingruber, Deputy Director of the Board on Science Education at the National Academy of Sciences, will deliver a keynote address followed by a response from a local panel.
