U.S. STEM Education Model

Average Rating:

The U.S. STEM Education Model allows users to simulate the impact of various scenarios designed to increase the number of students who pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors and careers.

The model uses census data and standardized test scores to track the flow of students through the K-16 education system and into careers in STEM teaching or STEM industries. Many factors affect the number of students who ultimately pursue STEM careers. These factors are captured through a series of dynamic hypotheses and feedback loops that together determine the behavior of the system.

The U.S. STEM Education Model was originally developed by the Raytheon Company and contributed by the Raytheon Company to the Business-Higher Education Forum. For more information about the model, visit

What is the educational system of US?

Everyone for themselves. If you are underprivileged you are likely to remain that way. There are, of course, some very good schools that produce outstanding students in all areas of academia, sport and the arts. However there are many average and below average schools that do not give students the assistance they require. The USA needs to care more for its citizens and become a less harsh capitalist society incorporating some socialist wellware attributes also to assist areas of society including the educational and heath care system.

How does the US education system work?

I am British and I am trying to understand the US education system.  In the UK we have a national curriculum.  There are statutory subjects and national assessments at ages 7, 11 and 14 years old.  At 16 years old, national assessments called GCSEs are taken in a selection of subjects (usually 8-10).  Similarly at aged 18, A Levels are taken in typically 3-4 subjects.
In the US there is no national curriculum or national assessments.  How does it work?
