STEM and No Child Left Behind Legislation

As Congress continues to rework the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (popularly known as No Child Left Behind) , it is good to know that key parts of the proposed law would affect STEM education and open more doors for young women and minorities positioned to take advantage of the opportunity.

The bill seeks to fulfill four goals when it comes to STEM:
  1. Improving instruction in STEM subjects through grade 12
  2. Improving student engagement in and their access to STEM courses
  3. Improving the quality of STEM teachers by recruiting and training new teachers as well as improving existing teachers
  4. Closing the achievement gap between minority and white students and preparing more students for college in STEM subjects
