STEM Education: Connecting the Classroom to Careers

Over the past few years, there has been a focus on mathematics and science and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

Since President Obama came to power, it seems that almost everyone uses "how important mathematics and science education is and/or we need our children to help us create our future STEM workforce".  

The holiday programs for school kids helps the kids to learn better. It seems that more resources are being included in improving mathematics and science education programs.

However, with all this attention to mathematics and science, people really do not pay attention to how and why we arrive at this point in our education and economy.

If you pay attention to the economies of the richest countries in the world; they have a strong education system in which there are children who excel academically in all or most disciplines.

The reason why education is related to a strong economy is that with the education you can have a workforce that has the skills for employment in your economy.

When the United States has a strong economy and is a global leader, we have a great education system. However, the condition of our current education system is that students do not graduate with skills for jobs currently available in our economy.

There are various reasons for this, but my main theory behind this is not enough children or parents think about their future because it is related to connecting their education with their future careers.
