“The increasingly globalized economy requires workers with strong science, technology, engineering and math skills,” said John Thomasian, director of the NGA Center. “This Committee is intended to provide the perspectives of a variety of stakeholders to governors and states as they work to establish and grow STEM education programs that can contribute to economic competitiveness.”
Now seriously, when "variety of stakeholders" is used to describe a committee, you can bet it's stacked with educrats.
(IMO) Just 2 out of the 19 (Stephens and Quinn) are really equipped to contribute and possibly improve our ability to compete in the globalized economy.
Feel free to check the committee's credentials and content specific experience yourself! Happy hunting!!
