Advocate ESS Prominence
ESS professions increasing, though ESS major declarations decrease. Students not introduced to ESS in K-12 with enthused teachers less likely to pursue ESS majors & professions.
Equity in ESS
Inner cities & minority students less likely to receive ESS education
Cultivate ESS Teachers
K-12 classroom—increasingly important providing authentic learning experiences to develop ESS literacy
Resource management, climate change, water management, pollution control, earthquake mitigation—citizenry understanding of complex topics is inadequate
