Congressional STEAM Caucus May Turn STEM to STEAM

What happened to the future of education in America last week was hard to believe. Frankly, I did not think it would ever happen.

Like most of you, perhaps, things just don't seem to get done in Washington D.C. so I discounted the fact that a Congressional Caucus on STEAM, adding the arts to the call for more Scientists, Technologists, Engineers and Mathematicians was formed in 2013. The goal was modest: to "host briefings and advocate for policy changes that will encourage educators to integrate arts, broadly defined, with traditional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math curriculum. The goal is to encourage the creativity needed to drive our innovation economy forward."

It was nice, I thought, but probably just another minority voice to the call for arts and arts integration in our schools.

I was wrong and I am elated.

YES, I hope it happens.
