53 percent of parents said being good at math is more important than being good at sports for future success.
Despite the data showing that other countries beat us in math, 72% of parents say that their kids love math and are on the right track with mathematics.
“These survey findings are very encouraging. They show that parents have a clear vision about the importance of math in their children’s future opportunities,” said Pamela Erickson, Raytheon’s vice president of Community Relations. “With job growth in science, technology, engineering and math outpacing non-STEM-related jobs, Raytheon remains committed to helping parents and teachers guide their students toward the exciting and challenging opportunities awaiting them in STEM-related careers.”
