The Congressional Caucus on STEAM, led by Congressperson Bonamici, added an amendment to the U.S.’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act’s (ESEA) rewrite last week asking to integrate the arts into STEM education. The bill then goes to the House and Senate. If passed in early December, it will go to the President.
The amendment asks to include the arts in these STEM programs to encourage well-rounded education and increase participation and skill levels in STEM.
