To advance the State of California's effort to provide all students with a world class education, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson and Assembly member Susan Bonilla convened the STEM Task Force to explore the status of STEM education in curriculum, instructional practices, professional learning for teachers, student testing, existing resources and infrastructure, and community and business partnerships.
The STEM Task Force members will assess the state's future needs, as well as recommend a blueprint on how to improve teaching, learning, and equal access to STEM-related courses and careers for K-12 students. The resultant blueprint will include career technical education, and newly developed national Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
