A consensus exists that improving STEM education throughout the Nation is a necessary condition for preserving our capacity for innovation and discovery and for ensuring U.S. economic strength and competitiveness in the international marketplace of the 21st century. The National Academies Rising Above the Gathering Storm report placed major emphasis on the need to improve STEM education and made its top priority increasing the number of highly qualified STEM teachers. This recommendation was embraced by the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee following the issuance of the report and was included in the 2007 America COMPETES Act. The 2010 America COMPETES Reauthorization Act continues this priority.
