Why early STEM education will drive the U.S. economy

Kenneth Corbin | April 25, 2016
The Obama administration pushes to start kids on science and technology education at a young age to elevate the nation’s competitive position socially and economically.

The Education and Health and Human Services departments are also jointly developing a policy statement that will chart a course for the role of technology in early education.

In the private sector, groups ranging from the Jim Henson Company to the Girl Scouts of America and Nickelodeon are pledging money and resources to support STEM-themed education, television programming and teacher training, among other efforts.

A full list of the STEM commitments the White House has secured can be found here.
