Houston, We Have a Problem

I am at the #100kin10 conference at Johnson Space Center; a convergence of industry, government, non profit, and higher education professionals. Ten percent of the attendees are hand selected classroom teachers and this is the first time teachers are attending.
The "moonshot goal" is to produce 100k highly trained STEM teachers in 10 years.
We spent the day digging around the root causes that are standing in the way of effective STEM integration. I came here hoping for solutions and wound up standing in the gaping maw of this beastly dilemma. It is always darkest before the dawn, right?

At least I got to meet astronaut Nancy Currie and stand in the space shuttle.
