Despite being the inventing country of the Internet, the United States ranks 15th overall in broadband adoption and ranks 28th in Internet speed in the world. Moreover, even with coherent actions taken by various institutions, the U.S. cannot produce a sufficient number of experts in science, math and technology fields to meet its’ national and global needs. This situation is not satisfactory for educators and legislators to reach U.S. education goals. To improve this situation, President Obama has proposed several action plans. This paper presents a closer look at the U.S. plan for science, mathematics and technology education as well as some specifics regarding the effects of technology education in general over the last decade. Conclusions are made regarding whether the President’s plan is too ambitious as well as whether the vision is comprehensive enough but still possible to execute.
