U.S. Department of Education Announces Partnership with Beyond100K

March 29, 2024

In December, the U.S. Department of Education hosted the YOU Belong in STEM National Coordinating Conference in Washington, D.C. as a key initiative for the Biden-Harris Administration.

During the conferece, the Department also announced its partnership with Beyond100K to identify the key challenges to fully staffing schools with STEM teachers who reflect the diversity of their students and create classrooms of belonging.

Beyond100K will also partner with the Department and other stakeholders to better understand and predict the supply and demand of STEM teachers at the state and local levels. Additionally, Beyond100K will co-sponsor a series of national communities of practices to support states, school districts, and other education organizations in developing and implementing innovative solutions to the STEM educator shortage and improve equitable access to high-quality STEM instruction for all students, especially those most excluded from STEM opportunity.
