U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan Issues Statement on the Release of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (Pcast) K-12 STEM Education Report
"Everyone has a stake in improving STEM education. Inspiring all our students to be capable in math and science will help them contribute in an increasingly technology-based economy, and will also help America prepare the next generation of STEM professionals-scientists, engineers, architects and technology professionals-to ensure our competiveness. The President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology's (PCAST) report and work will be a valuable resource as we join efforts with the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies, educators, the business community, non-profits and philanthropies, to provide better support for STEM education to schools, classrooms, teachers and students."
