Supporting Excellent Science Teaching for Georgia

Legislative Action Alert: Speak up for STEM in the NCLB Reauthorization

11 Apr 2015 8:51 AM | Jeremy Peacock (Administrator)
GSTA is passing on the following message from the National Science Teachers Association.  Please take a few moments to read and act on this important notice.

The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are currently working to reauthorize (rewrite) No Child Left Behind. Please contact your members of Congress immediately, and ask them to make STEM education a national priority. At the Legislative Action Center of the STEM Education Coalition website, you can send a letter to your elected representatives, asking them to

  • Maintain a strong focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
  • Continue the focus on math and science as required elements of any state's accountability system.
  • Provide states with dedicated funding to support STEM-related activities and teacher training.

It is urgent that educators take a moment to write to your elected officials, and send this message to colleagues and networks in your school or district.
