Deadline NOW: Preparing U.S. Students for Success

Friday, December 17, 2010

Recent test scores of 15-year-olds around the world find U.S. students improving, but still in the middle of the pack. To prepare students to compete successfully in the 21st century, many educators are stressing efforts to advance science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM), in addition to reading.

This week's guests discuss STEM and other initiatives to improve education in the United States. Joining Jack Lessenberry are Dr. Charlene Czerniak, Professor at the University of Toledo in the department of Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. Jan. L. Osborn, the Superintendent of Schools in Putnam County, Ohio, and Mr. Robert Mendenhall, Director of Science for Toledo Public Schools.
