Rationale for STEM
Income inequality has reached its highest level since the Great Depression, and increasing disparities are eroding educational opportunities in the U.S. Education leaders need to restore opportunities and improve outcomes for all students-no matter where they come from, where they learn, or where they live. Providing access to STEAM initiatives in our schools helps to foster those 21st-century skills that are so critical for the children of today ensuring their future for tomorrow.
