Transforming Science Education in America: A Stakeholder Conversation

Leading stakeholders in the future of science education in the U.S. will gather to discuss two recently released reports that are sure to impact this nation's science education agenda for years to come.

The basis of the conversation will be The Carnegie Corporation's new report, "The Opportunity Equation," which calls for a national mobilization to achieve higher levels of math and science learning, and "Taking the Pulse of Bioscience Education in America," a report that finds that the U.S. is failing to prepare students for pursuing biosciences in higher education.

Speakers to date include:
• Bruce Alberts, Editor-in-Chief, Science, AAAS, and former president of the National Academy of Sciences
• The Honorable Jim Greenwood, President and CEO, Biotechnology Industry Organization, and former Congressional representative from Pennsylvania
• Joan Ferrini-Mundy, Executive Officer (Acting), Education and Human Resources; Director, Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings, National Science Foundation
• Susan Sclafani, Director, State Services, National Center on Education and the Economy
