The invisibility of students with disabilities in STEM
Students with disabilities are highly underserved in STEM education and are often tracked out of pursuing STEM. Teachers who do not major in special education have very limited exposure to effective approaches to serving their students with disabilities. And while many teacher education programs and schools have a growing focus on equity in STEM, disability is often absent from the equity lens. How do we close a gap that’s largely invisible? Three Noyce Scholars from Metropolitan State University of Denver offer their perspectives on this issue. The video offers some starting recommendations with the hope to generate much more dialogue and sharing of resources around this important issue.
