POLITICO June 12, 2013
Last week, Eric Schwarz, Co-Founder and CEO of Citizen Schools and Executive Chairman of US2020, joined POLITICO Pro’s Tech Deep Dive: STEM Policy’s Next Steps. Joined by Tom Kalil, Deputy Director for Technology and Innovation for The White House, and others the conversation centered on the state of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, implications on the next STEM workforce, and upcoming STEM policy measures in the next year.
