This report, from the Royal Society, expresses the belief that science and mathematics are at the heart of modern life and provide the foundations for economic prosperity and explains the Royal Society’s ambition for the next twenty years of science and mathematics education.

*All young people study mathematics and science up to the age of 18.

*Curricula and their assessment are stabilised and support excellent teaching and learning.

*Teachers have high professional status and there is a strong supply of science and mathematics specialists.

*Students understand the significance of STEM through better careers awareness and guidance.

*The success of students, teachers and education systems is judged through appropriate and broadly based assessment and accountability measures.
