  • The Commission reported: 1. There was a widespread interest in the subject of industrial education. 2. The lack of skilled workmen was not chiefly a want of manual dexterity but a want of what what may be called industrial intelligence. 3. There was a growing feeling of inadequacy of the existing public school system to fully meet the needs of modern industrial and social conditions. The schools were too exclusively literary in their spirit, scope, and methods. 4. To the question of who should bear the expense of technical education, the common answer was the state.
  • On June 7, 1905, Massachusetts Governor William Douglas appointed a Commission on Industrial and Technical Education that later became known as the Douglas Commission. The Commission reported: 1. There was a widespread interest in the subject of industrial education. 2. The lack of skilled workmen was not chiefly a want of manual dexterity but a want of what what may be called industrial intelligence. 3. There was a growing feeling of inadequacy of the existing public school system to fully meet the needs of modern industrial and social conditions. The schools were too exclusively literary in their spirit, scope, and methods. 4. To the question of who should bear the expense of technical education, the common answer was the state.

  • The Fundamental Question of the 21st Century is: How do we cultivate innovation and innovators in our schools? Dr. Francis X. Kane Military Father of GPS (Col. USAF, 19182013)
  • Adaptive Leadership Ronald Heifetz Harvard University http://www.npr.org/2013/11/11/230841224/lessons-in-leadership-its-not-about-you-its-about-them When we face a challenge where people have to change, leadership’s role is to engage the people with the problem to solve it for themselves—rather than prescribing a solution from the top down.
  • Successful adaptive changes build on the past rather than jettison it. Organizational adaptation occurs through experimentation. Adaptation relies on diversity. http://hbr.org/product/the-theory-behind-the-practice-a-brief-introductio/an/3241BC-PDFENG

  • Is there a labor market shortage of STEM workers?
  • There are too many college educated, experienced STEM workers who are trying to find a job; there is not a shortage of them (Economic Policy Institute). However, current STEM job categorization does not typically include health and medical jobs or the majority of middle and high skill jobs.
  • The STEM Crisis Is a Myth By Robert N.

  • Forecast of STEM Occupational Growth Georgetown University, Center for Education and the Workforce Total jobs: STEM occupations will grow from 6.8 million to 8 million total jobs by 2018.

  • US Department of Labor and US Bureau of the Census in National Skills Coalition
  • There are 29 million middle skill jobs. Many of these jobs are wrongly classified as middle skill jobs because they only require a two year degree or or certificate (Bettersworth, TSTC.edu).

  • America's labour market Hollowing out Jan 9th 2012, 14:50 by R.A. | WASHINGTON The American workforce, by many accounts, has been polarizing. Middle-skill jobs in manufacturing and many business services have been disappearing thanks to automation and international competition, but lowand high-skill employment is increasing. During the recession and recovery… Highly skilled workers have done best, low-skill workers have done poorly, and those in middle-skill employment have done very, very poorly, even as the job market has improved over the past year.
  • International Trade and Polarization in the Labor Market Satya P. Das Indian Statistical Institute, Delhi In the last two decades a huge literature, both empirical and theoretical, has emerged on the rising global trend of wage inequality since the 70s and the associated changes in employment patterns. This has been attributed mainly to skill-biased technical change (SBTC), but also significantly to freer international trade between developed and developing countries. See, for instance, Bernard and Jensen (1997), Chapter 4 in Feenstra (2004), Bivens (2007) and Krugman (2008), among many others. Taking into account relatively more recent data, 1987-2004 for the U.S. and 1975-1995 for the U.K., a more specific – and an interesting – pattern of wage distribution and employment has been discerned, compared to the earlier literature: namely, a continuing positive trend of wage inequality in the top half of the distribution (for both U.S. and U.K.), coupled with a slightly declining trend in the U.S. and a mildly positive trend in the U.K. in the bottom half of the distribution. Furthermore, in both economies the shares of high-wage as well as low-wage jobs have increased, while that of middle-wage jobs has declined. Goos and Manning has aptly depicted such a change in the employment pattern as a growth of both “Lousy and Lovely Jobs.” It has also been termed as hollowing out or job polarization, “with employment polarizing into high-wage and low-wage jobs at the expense of middle-skill jobs” (taken from Autor et al., 2006). http://dx.doi.org/10.5018/economics-ejournal.ja.2012-6
  • • There is no standard workforce or education definition of STEM in the U.S. • Today, labor market shortages are for STEMbased skills across many jobs not typically classified as STEM. • A new approach to analysis is needed to identify how social institutions such as employment are changing as well as what skills give rise to economic innovation.

  • • Automation (robotics) is having a significant impact on the labor market by transforming the input to the economy (input - artificial labor and artificial intelligence). Robotics is deflationary but not necessarily a high value job generator overall. • The net effect of the adoption and diffusion of technology is the transformation of social institutions—including family, work, school, law, the economy, and national defense. • The changes in work, the economy and other social institutions is so profound that it is difficult—if not impossible— to understand these changes using traditional measures.

  • When our predecessors stood at the edge of the world and gazed up at Sputnik in 1957, they did not respond with a narrow focus on technology education or training. General Robert F. McDermott, Academic Dean, of the U.S. Air Force Academy, founded the new academy on the idea that in a world of increasing technological complexity, education needs to increase emphasis in both classical and contemporary studies.

Presented by Seattle-based nonprofit Code.org, The event aims to demystify computer science for educators and students alike. Thus far, some 28,000 groups plan to host tutorials next week across 166 countries. Code.org created the free tutorial in collaboration with engineers from Microsoft, Google, Twitter and Facebook. It uses puzzles featuring characters from popular online games like “Angry Birds” to introduce students to coding concepts.

A culture of innovation is conducive to learning, improving, and adapting while fostering risk taking. In this view, learning cannot be achieved without feedback as an integral part of the learning loop. •PRE-K TO PhD NETWORKS, SYSTEMS, & PATHWAYS - Sequenced, integrated and transferable courses across K-12, Community College, University and the Adult Continuing Education spectrum of lifelong learning.

  • For Dr. Francis X. “Duke” Kane liberal education and the arts are part and parcel to STEM education and the cultivation of the “creativeforce” we need for the missions ahead. For Duke, “creativity and collaboration” were the two necessary qualities to engender in the education of what he affectionately called the “Speed of Light Generation.”
