White House Memo on STEM

September 29th, 2017

from: Campus Technology

Finally, something the current White House and its previous residents can agree on: the need to invest in STEM education. President Trump this week issued a memo to Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, encouraging her to divert $200 million from her agency’s annual budget to grant programs that support “high-quality science, technology, engineering and math education.”

“These skills open the door to jobs, strengthening the backbone of American ingenuity, driving solutions to complex problems across industries, and improving lives around the world,” Trump stated in the memo. “As part of my administration’s commitment to supporting American workers and increasing economic growth and prosperity, it is critical that we educate and train our future workforce to compete and excel in lucrative and important STEM fields.”
