From: Education DailyEducation and business leaders will convene this month to discuss the importance of providing quality science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs for teachers. The session will focus on Preparing STEM Teachers: The Key to Global Competitiveness, a report by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, that AACTE will present in conjunction with the Senate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education Caucus. If students are going to enter the workforce and thrive in the world’s increasingly competitive economy, they need well-trained teachers to guide them, educators say. The event, hosted by Sharon Robinson, president of AACTE, will include Linda Darling-Hammond of Stanford University, Robin Wilner of IBM and secondary STEM educators Lisa M. Suarez-Carabello and Valdine McLean. AACTE will release its report at the event, 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at 325 Russell Senate Building in Washington, D.C.
