Assemblywoman Susan A. Bonilla and Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson invite you to the Unveiling of the California STEM Task Force Report.

BACKGROUND ON STEM: On May 24, 2012, Torlakson and Bonilla convened 55 volunteers to become members of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Task Force.

Co-chaired by Herb Brunkhorst and Susan Hackwood, the STEM Task Force members explored the status of STEM education in curriculum, instructional practices, professional learning, student testing, existing resources, and community and business partnership.

The Task Force members assessed the state’s future needs, and will recommend a blueprint on how to improve teaching, learning, and equal access to STEM-related courses and careers for students in grades K-12.

This kind of thing looks good, until you look at the board of governors.

Hard to believe Bonilla cares about kids when she votes to let boys into girls restrooms in public schools.

Before I read the article, I thought they were proposing something to do with stem cell research – not much of a stretch given Bonilla’s recent legislative venture on compensating women who donate eggs for scientific research.

They should think about switching the letters around….maybe METS instead of STEM.

@#2,
What’s even harder to believe is that you have more than 4 brain cells to your name!

Another TASK FORCE on education. Maybe if their hire good professional teachers and start teaching them real math and science instead of these feel good classes. Maybe these kids will excel and there won’t be a need for a TASK FORCE.
