If we work together this problem can be fixed for all students across the nation.
If all schools in your home state do not yet offer both technology and engineering as core subjects, you can help fix the problem. Each state's legislature (house) is responsible for developing laws that the state’s department of education must follow, so if your state doesn’t require (by law) technology and engineering for all: the legislature can and should make a law that will begin to fix the problem.
It’s time that those of us who know about the problem connect with those who can fix the problem. First, get a hold of the members of your state’s legislature (House) education committee and let them know that there is a STEM education problem they need to address. Start here: find your state’s House Education Committee members. Contact them requesting laws to require Technology and Engineering be required throughout K12 education (primary through grade 12).
After contacting the House Education Committee in your home state, work with them to create T & E education laws for all students that will ensure quality T & E education for all students: STEM for all.
