Some subscribers to Math-Learn might be interested in a recent
discussion-list post "Reform of STEM Education Requires A Systems
Approach" [Hake (2012)]. The abstract reads:

*******************************************
ABSTRACT: Lees Stuntz (2012), executive director of "Creative
Learning Exchange" <http://clexchange.org/> called attention to an
AAAS News Release "Systemic School Reform Necessary for Science
Education Improvements" at <http://bit.ly/xNfuW0>. The release
indicated that improving education in science, technology,
engineering and mathematics (STEM) would require a new SYSTEMS
APPROACH that "views education as part of a larger, more complex
enterprise that reaches far beyond the classroom." To dig deeper on
"systems thinking" see e.g.: "Over Two-Hundred Annotated References
on Systems Thinking," at <http://bit.ly/9gZdXU> and "Books for
Laypersons on Systems Thinking #2" at <http://bit.ly/npq5oy>.
