Hearing on Innovation in Education through Business and Education STEM Partnerships

Posted by Texas Education on July 22, 2008

Today the House Education and Labor Committee will hold a hearing to examine how business-education partnerships can help drive innovation and strengthen math and science education in America’s schools.

A report released by the National Math Panel in March found that the nation’s system for teaching math is “broken and must be fixed” if the U.S. wants to maintain its competitive edge. In May, the Committee first examined the report’s findings and recommendations; this hearing will follow up on that hearing.
