Through its membership on the STEM Education Coalition’s Leadership Council, ATEC provides part 147 schools an opportunity to support life-long technical education on Capitol Hill.
The Every Child Achieves Act (S.1177) has recently emerged in the Senate. The comprehensive and bipartisan bill includes a significant focus on improving learning in the critical science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. Specifically, the bill includes a hard-won provision – adopted by a close vote during committee consideration – that would provide every state with dedicated funding to support a wide range of STEM education activities, including professional development and hands on learning.
Tell the Senate how important this provision is to the future of American education. By beginning with elementary education, ATEC can help to foster technical skills and interest that will bear fruit when students consider hands on fields like aviation maintenance.
