Broad Array of STEM Organizations Support Common Standards in Math, Science

December 3, 2014:

The STEM Education Coalition has joined with a diverse group of professional, educational, and business organizations in issuing a join statement of support for state-led efforts to adopt and implement rigorous common standard in mathematics and science that promote deeper learning in STEM subjects.

The statement, which was co-signed by 44 different organizations,  emphasizes the importance of mobilizing the entire STEM education community – employers, professionals, educators, and their supporting organizations – to become informed about the benefits and implications of standards and to be engaged in their success.  It also expresses a shared belief that strong STEM skills are a central element of a well-rounded education and essential to effective participation in the global economy - for all students.

See the full text of the statement and its signatories here.
