Enriching Opportunities for All Students: Moving Beyond Core Skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Most of the world's elite schools have robust STEAM offerings, because research shows that hands-on science and arts play a pivotal role in cognitive development. Furthermore, creative problem solving skills are becoming ever more important in the modern job market. However, in the era of NCLB accountability, some of the neediest schools have had to prioritize math and literacy, leaving little time for enriching STEAM curricula. How do we ensure all students develop foundational skills without sacrificing other opportunities that further students’ overall development? This panel will explore the tension between these priorities.
