Is a widening “skills gap” in science and math education threatening America’s future? That is the seminal question addressed in The U.S. Technology Skills Gap, a comprehensive 104-year review of math and science education in America. Some claim this “skills gap” is “equivalent to a permanent national recession” while others cite how the gap threatens America’s future economic, workforce employability and national security.

This much is sure: America’s math and science skills gap is, or should be, an issue of concern for every business and information technology executive in the United States and The U.S Technology Skills Gap is the how-to-get involved guidebook for those executives laying out in a compelling chronologic format:

  • The history of the science and math skills gap in America
  • Explanation of why decades of astute warnings were ignored
  • Inspiring examples of private company efforts to supplement public education
  • A pragmatic 10-step action plan designed to solve the problem
  • And a tantalizing theory of an obscure Japanese physicist that suggests America’s days as the global scientific leader are numbered

Engaging and indispensable, The U.S. Technology Skills Gap is essential reading for those eager to see America remain a relevant global power in innovation and invention in the years ahead.
