On Thursday, May 27, the Obama Administration released its National Security Strategy (NSS) document that lays out a strategic approach for advancing American interests, and addresses a wide array of issues including strengthening STEM education. The document notes that
“America’s long-term leadership depends on educating and producing future scientists and innovators. We will invest more in STEM education so students can learn to think critically in science, math, engineering, and technology; improve the quality of math and science teaching so American students are no longer outperformed by those in other nations; and expand STEM education and career opportunities for underrepresented groups, including women and girls. We will work with partners—from the private-sector and nonprofit organizations to universities—to promote education and careers in science and technology.”
