The purpose of this study is to compare the education systems in the United States and Chile. Through an auto-ethnographic lens, the findings compare the way that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are taught and regarded in each country based on literature review and on personal experience in classrooms in each of these countries. In the United States, STEM education is currently undergoing major reforms; politicians, school board members, teachers, and parents are working to enrich the education this country offers its students. This paper asserts that having an international perspective on STEM education will more fully enhance the current reform movement in the U.S. The Chilean education system is undergoing similar scrutiny, with students demanding that their rights be met. Therefore, it will be informative to compare this movement to that of leaders in STEM education in the United States.
