Federal and state funding agencies have invested billions of dollars into secondary STEM (Science, Technology, Education, Mathematics) educational reform over the past decade. This volume addresses the interplay of external and internal variables associated with school reform and how this dynamic has impacted many efforts. The goal of this book is to lead scholars in the right direction by providing an open discussion of challenges associated with STEM educational reform in the context of the successes of funded projects.

Editorial Reviews

"The chapters in Johnson's book are well-chosen accounts of the complexity of STEM reform in the secondary setting. Each chapter shares the unique experiences of those involved in the reform efforts, with the goal of illustrating both the challenges and opportunities experienced by the different participants. This book is certainly for educators who are beginning or involved in a STEM reform project, as well as policy makers who are interested in the challenges in STEM reform." - Julie A. Luft, Professor, School of Life Sciences & Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University"We are now in the STEM Generation. Secondary STEM Educational Reform clearly delineates the challenges educators face in STEM Education into two distinct micro (internal) and macro (external) impediments.But because of the writers are experienced with implementations of secondary education reform, practical solutions to these impediments are presented. This book transcends the discussion of why things do not change to how things can change." - Dr. Alan Zollman, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Northern Illinois University
