Tracking the status of technology education in the United States.

Technology and engineering education continues to evolve as it becomes more apparent that students need this information to become more successful in college and careers. (Custer & Wright 2009; Ritz & Moye, 2011).

The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) has tracked the status of technology education in the United States in three separate studies over the past decade with the research undertaken by its Technology for All Americans Project staff (Newberry, 2001; Meade & Dugger, 2004; and Dugger, 2007).

This 2011-12 study provided a fourth inquiry into that research, with engineering education being added as a curriculum area along with technology education.
