Summary
The workshop brought together representatives of government, industry, academia, scientific societies, and foundations who are involved in organizing, funding, and delivering in-service outreach programs for high school chemistry teachers. The goal of the workshop was to explore how high school chemistry education could be improved through teacher outreach programs, with a particular emphasis on assessments of program effectiveness. The workshop sought programs that could improve the chemistry education of all students, not just those pursing a career in science. To this end, presentations at the workshop covered the current status of high school chemistry education; provided examples of public and private outreach programs; and explored how to evaluate whether current outreach programs are meeting the needs of chemistry teachers and students. The workshop did not attempt to address the many other issues related to high school chemistry education, including pre-service teacher training, national standards, teacher compensation, and teacher shortages
