How Can We Train and Retain America’s STEM Educators?


Twelve years ago, President Barack Obama focused his State of the Union address on education, calling for the training of 100,000 new teachers of science and mathematics. By 2021, that 100,000 goal had been achieved, but there was still work to be done. And in 2022, the U.S. Department of Education announced its You Belong in STEM initiative, designed to bring equity and high-quality STEM education to America’s schools. 

How do we ensure that STEM teachers are given the tools necessary to succeed?

What challenges do we face in bringing high-quality STEM education to our nation’s classrooms? And how can we ensure that STEM education is helping our students understand the problems of today… and tomorrow?

In this episode, Kevin explores how we can best support and cultivate STEM teachers with Deputy Secretary of Education Cindy Marten and Beyond 100K founder Talia Milgrom-Elcott.
