The State of Affairs (2009)


In November 2008, the National Science Foundation funded a meeting of a group of leaders from two-year colleges (including NACCTEP Executive Board members) and STEM professional organization to discuss the state of STEM teacher preparation in the United States. The outcome of this meeting was a report, The State of Affairs: Impact and Implications of STEM Teacher Education at Two-Year Colleges. This report addresses current practices, challenges, and recommendations for future action related to STEM teacher preparation at two-year colleges.


Contributors believe this publication will inform institutions wanting to initiate or enhance their STEM teacher preparation, and guide policy makers as they forge legislation to enhance STEM education in the U.S.
