What is the value of a #STEM job?

Workers with STEM degrees tend to earn more, and experience lower levels of unemployment than those without.

Also: the number of STEM jobs keeps rising steadily.

NSB’s latest report shows that U.S. student performance in #STEM has not improved in over a decade, placing the U.S. in the middle of a long list of global competitors.

Long-standing disparities persist in student science and math scores across racial, ethnic, and economic groups.

"Irrespective of population size, countries are gaining on the U.S. as their students outperform our students... This lackluster performance is a risk to our future economic competitiveness and leadership in innovation and must be addressed."

The National Science Board today released the Elementary and Secondary STEM Education report that shows that the U.S. is trailing many of its global competitors in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. The new report is part of the 2022 edition of the congressionally mandated Science and Engineering Indicators report on the state of the U.S. science and engineering enterprise.

“We need well-trained workers to produce new knowledge and innovations that drive the economy,” said Julia Phillips, who leads the Science and Engineering Policy Committee of the National Science Board. “For a country that considers itself a world leader, these test scores are not acceptable.”
