The common core state standards for mathematics and recently released science framework provide an opportunity to improve K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. However, a significant challenge to successful implementation and fulfillment of this potential is having a teacher workforce prepared to teach to these higher standards. APLU's Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI) is convening this panel to discuss how higher education can help meet this challenge.

The Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI) is an initiative of A۰P۰L۰U and the nation’s public research universities to transform middle and high school science, technology, engineering and mathematics education by preparing a new generation of world-class science and mathematics teachers.
