100Kin10 was convened by Carnegie Corporation of New York and Opportunity Equation to respond to a national imperative voiced by President Barack Obama to stimulate the supply of excellent mathematics and science teachers, but also to continue to improve their practice and keep them in classrooms.  

The movement is inspired by a vision of a future—shared by stakeholders from federal agencies to states, museums to universities, teacher residencies to school districts, non-profits to corporations, and teachers to parents—where all students have the STEM literacy necessary to be full participants in the nation’s economy and democracy. The 100Kin10 partners believe change can only come if they—and many others—commit to harnessing their creativity, passion, and resources to increase and equitably fill teaching positions across all schools in all states with excellent STEM teachers. Each of the more than 115 partners has committed to using their resources and talent to grow the movement and has established measurable goals toward this end.
