Science, technology, engineering, and math have always been key components of a college preparatory education. However, in recent years, studies have shown that fewer than 50% of high school graduates are ready for college-level math and science courses. This lack of readiness can affect a student’s chances of earning a four-year degree, which in turn can affect his or her job opportunities. At Quarry Lane School, a private school in the Bay Area, we understand and emphasize the importance of STEM education. With more and more occupations requiring a postsecondary education, STEM is an essential part of a well-rounded college preparatory curriculum. Take a look at this infographic to see why STEM education is so important for success in high school, college, and in the workforce. Please share with your friends and family.
