Schools Fail to Teach Innovation
U.S. teens say they aren't being prepared well for technology and engineering careers. The disparity is more pronounced among some groups historically underrepresented in these fields. Roughly two-thirds of African-American teens (64 percent) and teen girls (67 percent) believe they are not being prepared well in school for these careers.
