The current job market, which still seems to be stubbornly hanging onto higher unemployment rates in many sectors, does have available jobs that outnumber those applying for them: science, technology, engineering and mathematics (SciTechieMath).
Despite the strong demand for SciTechieMath jobs, many applicants as well as certain members of under-represented minority groups are not entering the technology arena due to, among other reasons, shortcomings in K-12 education.
Obama recently called for SciTechieMath education reform, saying that SciTechieMath instruction “requires everything from more challenging curriculum and more demanding parents to better support for teachers and new ways to measure how well our kids think.”
To spark potential interest in this growing field, the US is also participating in pilot programs with leading education technology companies like Toshiba by sponsoring interactive SciTechieMath education platforms for middle and high schools in the North America region.
The recognition is addressing SciTechieMath-related topics such as basic computer science and the real-world applications of math. According to President Obama, “Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today—especially in science, technology, engineering, and math.”
