Huge victory for STEAM education
The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation are huge supporters of arts being incorporated into the STEM education.
Yesterday, November 19th, “Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) successfully added an amendment today to the rewrite of the nation’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) legislation that will integrate the arts into STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math).
The amendment specifically citing the arts states: ‘integrating other academic subjects, including the arts, into STEM programs to increase participation in STEM, improve attainment of STEM-related skills, and promote well-rounded education;’
After many years of anticipation, this bipartisan legislation will set new K-12 education policies impacting the nation’s 100,000 schools across the country.”
We are looking forward to working with the Toms River Regional Schools, Ocean County College, NJIT and Kean University to make STEAM a reality for students in Ocean County.
