The Quiet Crisis: Falling Short in Producing American Scientific and Technical Talent

This paper from Shirley Jackson of Building Engineering & Science Talent highlights the lack of technical and scientific talent being produced in the U.S. There is a quiet crisis building in the United States; a crisis that could jeopardize the nation's pre-eminence and well-being. The crisis has been mounting gradually, but inexorably, over several decades. If permitted to continue unmitigated, it could reverse the global leadership Americans currently enjoy. Target Audience: High School Faculty/Administrators, 2-4 Year College Faculty/Administrators, Engineers,Industry Personnel, Government Personnel, Scientists, Technicians, General Public
