The State Education Committee focuses on education policy discussions taking place across the country. CompTIA looks to increasingly be seen as a leader on education policy and advocacy, weighing in with policy makers and education leaders in state capitols, school districts and institutions of higher education across the U.S. The Committee advocates for educational policies that will best prepare our students for a future in the evolving global workforce, with an emphasis on STEM instruction and digital learning. Including and improving STEM instruction in primary and secondary core education will provide students with the fundamental skill set needed to compete in a rapidly changing, technology-driven economy. Bringing digital technology into the classroom will enable teachers to leverage the best delivery mechanisms, innovative content, and data-based personalized learning efforts to accelerate student learning and achievement.
Providing a quality education for our children today will lead to a more knowledgeable and empowered workforce in the future.
