Every Student Succeeds with STEM
NSTA invites you to join the Every Student Succeeds with STEM campaign to ensure that STEM education is a priority in the new federal education law, ESSA.
As you know, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) became law in late 2015, when President Obama signed the bipartisan reauthorization of the national education law and replaced No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
ESSA provides states and local districts with the flexibility and power to set new policy and funding priorities.
Every state is now developing a new plan to submit to the U.S. Department of Education detailing how they will implement ESSA.
You have the power to impact your state's plan by promoting STEM as a critical piece of a well-rounded education. Here are three easy steps you can take today:
- Navigate to the Every Student Succeeds with STEM campaign hub to learn more about the law and how to support STEM.
- Amplify the campaign by using one of the ready-made graphics to tweet or post on Facebook (and follow @success_STEM while you're at it).
- Contact your Chief State School Officer to promote STEM, using the tools on the campaign hub.
NSTA needs your help; visit the campaign hub to learn more and get involved so that every student will succeed!
