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.

“Project Inspire - Proyecto Inspire Transformando Vidas” (bilingual Eng/Span format) - Season 7 (2016)

The California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) 2-INSPIRE Program works with parents to increase their knowledge about schooling to ensure that parents have vital information about high quality educational options for their children (especially those traditionally underserved and/or attending Program Improvement schools). The Project 2-INSPIRE curriculum informs parents of their role in their children’s education, works with parents so they learn how to work with the information acquired and develops parent leadership skills to ensure their participation and collaboration as part of the school community.   All three levels of the program share the same objective and goal: To increase parental engagement in their child’s learning at home, school, and/or community; and thereby increase their child’s academic achievement. However, each of the levels differs markedly in their approach, strategies, methods, activities, and outcomes for parents and their children.   The panelists are parent leaders who currently serve as officers of the Binational Parent Leadership Institute (BPLI), and as “trainer of trainers” have each passed all three levels, from awareness to mastery to expert.   Proyecto INSPIRE es un proyecto que pertenece a CABE que trabaja con los padres para aumentar sus conocimientos acerca de la escolarización para asegurar que los padres tengan la información vital acerca de las opciones educativas de alta calidad para sus hijos. El plan de estudios del Proyecto INSPIRE informa a los padres de su papel en la educación de sus hijos, trabaja con los padres para que aprendan cómo trabajar con la información adquirida y desarrolla las habilidades de liderazgo de los padres para asegurar su participación y colaboración en el marco de la comunidad escolar.   Los tres niveles comparten el mismo objetivo y meta: aumentar la participación de ...
