The Biggest Hole in STEM Pipeline Starts Before Kindergarten

http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-02-29/the-biggest-hole-in-stem-pipeline-starts-before-kindergarten 

It’s a well-established problem that too few blacks and Hispanics, and too few women of all colors, pursue degrees and careers in the sciences. And much research has gone into why minority students aren’t taking as many science classes in high school, and later in college, as their white counterparts do. Wonks call it the “leaky STEM pipeline,” referring to all the students who leave science, technology, engineering and math as they progress through their educational careers.
But a new study indicates that the STEM pipeline might have a giant hole in it far earlier than many of us ever thought: before kindergarten.
