Change the Equation announces "Commitment to Excellence in STEM"

August 13, 2014

Change the Equation is pleased to announce its Commitment to Excellence in STEM.  The Commitment is galvanizing the corporate community to increase STEM literacy in the U.S. The 26 Charter Signatory companies have pledged to ensure that their collective contribution to K-12 STEM learning has an impact far beyond their combined financial investment, which is less than one percent of the total expenditures on K-12 education.

The linchpins of the Commitment are collaboration with other corporations as well as programs and communities; high expectations for all students; data-driven advocacy for STEM; and the availability of high-quality STEM learning programs in communities across the country. (You can read the full Commitmenthere.)

“We applaud Corporate America for its role in making universal STEM literacy a reality,” said CTEq CEO Linda P. Rosen.   “The public declaration of support for the Commitment and the actions that will ensue from the corporate community recognizes STEM literacy as a transformative life-skill that impacts the future success of our young people and the ability of our nation to remain a leader in innovation.”
