  • Description: This special issue of Science explores "Grand Challenges in Science Education," a critical set of the problems and exciting opportunities now facing science education on a global level. The 20 Challenges, addressed by a team of education experts, range from "Enable students to build on their own enduring, science-related interests" to "Shift incentives to encourage education research on the real problems of practice as they exist in school settings." Here I propose three additional Grand Challenges. These focus on harnessing the wisdom of teachers, helping the business community promote new directions in precollege science education, and-last but not least-catalyzing major changes in the way we teach college-level science.
