The last few decades have brought about important shifts in STEM due mostly to globalization and technological developments. These shifts have generated an eminent demand for an increase in human capital and a centrality in the STEM fields due to the shortage and negative ramifications to global economic competitiveness.
One important issue is that to meet the increased demand for specialized labor, it is necessary to retain students in STEM. But unfortunately, more than 60% of those students who express an interest in pursuing a STEM major, leave without completing their intended program of study. This attrition is particularly high among racial and ethnic minority groups, including women and low-income students.
Representatives of higher education in both the U.S. and Mexico share their knowledge and experience with respect to the theme of Equity and Quality in Education through STEM Education, across international settings.

This panel is entitled "Educating Global Citizens: A Conversation with Ministers of Education", as we had the privilege of hosting Representatives from several ministries of education, there in order to provide opportunities for exchange of information, communication, and collaboration, and build international partnerships by making formal connections with leaders, scholars, teachers, and students.

This presentation has been made possible by the California-Mexico Studies Center, El Rancho Unified School District and LEAD, as co-conveners of the Campaign to Promote Ethnic Studies Summit on October 18, 2014, at CSU Long Beach. The CPES Summit was webcast by LEAD throughout its worldwide network and prompted the Los Angeles and San Francisco school districts to adopt policies similar to the historic El Rancho USD’s resolution approved in June 2014, as the first Ethnic Studies graduation requirement by a local school board in California. Since the CPES Summit, 15-20 more local school boards have adopted comparable Ethnic Studies policies throughout California, including the Santa Ana, Montebello, Bassett and Woodland school districts. This panel will present on the progress that has been made at El Rancho USD, to build upon their landmark resolution a comprehensive Ethnic Studies curriculum, and the also precedent-setting Long Beach Ethnic Studies Program (LB-ESP) that has created a model for school districts to offer ethnic studies H.S. and college-credit courses on Saturdays. The LB-ESP builds upon the nationally recognized Long Beach College Promise relationship between the LBUSD and CSULB, supported with a 5-year funding commitment by LBUSD, to offer high school students at least 12 college-credit Ethnic Studies courses every semester. The panelists will discuss in detail how these initiatives came about, their benefit and replicability, and answer questions related to the Campaign to Promote Ethnic Studies’ goal to promote Ethnic Studies for all students in the K-12 curriculum, throughout California and the United States.
