ASSESSMENT OF PROBLEMS AND REMEDIATION OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATHEMATICS EDUCATION

This paper was on the assessment of problems and remediation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. The paper looked at the goals of science education of most countries of the world which hinged on producing students who will develop: interest in STEM subjects, problem solving, decision making and creative skills. They become scientists, use STEM knowledge for the service of technology for national developments and also achieve economic security in their careers. These goals are not achieved by students in most countries of the world. The paper traced the global problems of STEM that hindered the achievement. The problems are seen as poor quality of STEM teacher, inadequate number of STEM teachers for the overwhelming number of students waiting to be educated STEM wise, poor or no incentives given to STEM teachers, assessment problems and others. In many African countries like Nigeria, it includes infrastructural problems and poor funding. Statistical evidences were used in the work to illustrate some of these issues. The paper treated many ways of solving these problems raised. Among them were: a call for the state and federal government’s full participation or sponsorship of STEM education and motivating teachers to their duties by introducing competitive programs for them, this will enhance their creativity and this creativity in one way or the other will be brought to bear on the students.
