Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program unveils plans to inspire, support more Alaskan K-12 science and math teachers

Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program (ANSEP), with the University of Alaska, is seeking to remedy a number of education issues unique to rural Alaska communities and villages: high annual teacher turnover rates, a lack of ethnic diversity within the teaching ranks and a lack of educators specialized in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This week ANSEP announced the launch of ANSEP STEM Teacher, which has a mission to help train, recruit and retain Alaskan students for careers in K-12 education across the state, especially rural areas and villages.According the National Center for Education Statistics, each year nearly 16 percent of teachers either move schools or leave the profession. However, high-poverty schools experience a teacher turnover rate of about 20 percent per calendar year nationally, roughly 50 percent higher than the rate in more affluent schools, according to the Alliance for Excellent Education
