STEM Education Reform in Urban High Schools: It’s Complicated; It’s Consequential (Webinar)

June 7 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join NSF’s STEM Education Directorate Wednesday, June 7 from 3-4 p.m. (EST) to hear from experts about STEM Education reform in urban high schools.

NSF-funded researchers Margaret Eisenhart (University of Colorado Boulder) and Lois Weis (SUNY Buffalo) will give a nuanced view of the obstacles marginalized students face in STEM education and will explain how schools can better support STEM learners. Reporting the results of a nine-year ethnographic study, the speakers will chronicle the outcomes of STEM education reforms in eight public high schools with nonselective admissions policies and high proportions of low-income and underserved students: four schools in Denver, Colorado, and four in Buffalo, New York. Register here!

This event is part of the EDU Core Research (ECR) program’s 10th anniversary. Find more information about ECR’s activities at the ECR Insights page and @ECRhub.
