Heather Lattimer Ed.D. Speaks on Panel on Equity in STEAM Education

In today’s global economy, a high-quality education is no longer just a pathway to success — it is a prerequisite. Because economic progress and educational achievement go hand in hand, educating every American student for success in a new workforce is a national imperative.
However, there are wide disparities in which students have access to advanced science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) education — subjects that are critical to future success.
In this inaugural Sally Ride STEAM Series panel discussion, the conversation focused on the importance of STEAM to the innovation economy as well as how to best to ensure equity in education.
