This fall, Congressional leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate—lead by Senator Lamar Alexander—will be working to reconcile the House and Senate education bills that would rewrite the No Child Left Behind. While the Senate bill includes language that would provide states with a dedicated program for STEM, the House legislation does not include a STEM program.
Now is the time for TN voters to reach out to Senator Alexander and ask him to ensure that the final bill to reauthorize No Child Left Behind includes the STEM program language in the Senate bill (Every Child Achieves Act , S.1177, Title II, Part E, Section 2005)
Please take a moment and join me in advocating for STEM education in Tennessee. Visit this website, where you can customize the letter that will go directly to Senator Alexander.
You can also forward this email to your colleagues and others in Tennessee and ask them to reach out to Senator Alexander.
