Obama's Education Advisors Discuss STEM Program

December 19, 2009
Back in late-November, President Obama announced the so-called "STEM" initiative to get U.S. students to embrace science, technology, engineering, and math. More than $260 million dollars in public and private money is going to fund the effort. American students show a below-average aptitude in math and science subjects, relative to students in other countries.In the video below, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and John Holdren, the director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, discuss the STEM plan, as well as how they plan to go about pulling American students up from the lower rungs of the math and science ladder.[
