Subject: Don't take Science out of Science Education
The President?s FY?14 budget proposes to consolidate Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Math (STEM) education efforts from 12 agencies to just
three ? Department of Education, National Science Foundation, and
Smithsonian. While the intended goals are commendable - better coordination
- the Administration provides no evidence to support this drastic measure
that would take NASA and other leading science agencies and their science
out of America?s science education.
If you've benefited from NASA science education and public outreach - or
from any of the STEM agencies that are impacted - please contact your
representatives in the House and Senate and let them know you support
keeping science in science education and not to eliminate these valuable
programs and resources.
