This report makes specific suggestions for K-20 STEM education, grouped around three themes: Providing opportunities for excellence, Casting a wide net [including equity], and Fostering a supportive [STEM education] ecosystem. Each theme includes proposed policy actions and research agenda. I was particularly impressed with discussions of equity, partnerships, community, professional development, and accountability in the report. It is frankly reassuring to see the National Science Board and the National Science Foundation explicitly reaffirm their commitments to K-20 STEM education innovation.
