Allen Legislation Promoting STEM Education in Schools Clears Education Committee



With New Jersey set to demand a total of 248, 250 jobs requiring education specializing in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by 2018, Senator Diane Allen is sponsoring legislation to promote instruction in these subject areas in New Jersey public schools.

S-2562, which was approved by the Senate Education Committee today, establishes a competitive grant program for school districts to support non-traditional and alternative STEM education programs and instruction.
