NSTA Legislative Update: September 20, 2010
9/20/2010 - Office of Legislative and Public Affairs
On September 16, President Obama announced the launch of Change the Equation, a CEO-led effort to dramatically improve STEM education that will be part of the Administration’s Educate to Innovate campaign. Also that day the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) released the Presidents Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) final report on actions the federal government can take to strengthen STEM education. The report goes directly to President Obama and is sure to have an impact on future policy and funding decisions. Also last week the National Science Board released a report and recommended ways that the country can foster the development of our next generation of leading STEM professionals, entrepreneurs, and inventors.
