The Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM has experience in starting up of a broad portfolio of network types designed to support advances in education transformation.
In order to meet a growing demand and to prepare students for the unique challenges of an increasingly global, knowledge-based, innovation-driven economy, we must create a new school design that places math and science more squarely at the center of the educational enterprise.

Ten leading education non-profits and U.S. technology firms announced the formation of US2020, an all-hands-on-deck initiative to place more STEM professionals as mentors for children K-16. Member companies will have 20% of their STEM employees engaged in at least 20 hours by 2020.

Our nationâ€™s children need opportunities to continue their education through the formal education system and into the workplace. Our 21st century children find the need to earn a living wage while they complete one credential after another in a quest to better themselves and their familyâ€™s future. A Learn and Earn strategy needs to be embraced by all states and then, promoted through funding provided by federal agencies, private philanthropy and the corporate philanthropic community as well. Our children and country deserve nothing less.
