In an article I read, it was claimed that the US lags behind other countries in preparing students for STEM fields. Some of the main reasons why this is occurring according to the article is low proficiency results on tests which can be related to the small percentage devoted to more "difficult" concepts compared to other countries, lack of training for STEM teachers, as well as pervasive inequalities in opportunities to learn among low-income schools and minority students. While all of these can impact the rate of individuals that go into STEM fields after high school, could the focus on "stronger curriculums" be overlooking the issues of inadequate educational opportunities for disadvantaged students? What are your thought on this?
