We became the best nation in the world by providing our educators and parents with the tools they need to raise the leaders of tomorrow. Today, we have a great need for more graduates who are educated in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) disciplines. I fully support the White House’s Educate to Innovate initiative that will move American students to the top of the list when it comes to STEM training. In Congress, I have worked with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to introduce legislation that boosts engineering education in schools, the Educating Tomorrow’s Engineers Act, or the ETEA.
