STEM

According to the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, schools must ensure that their STEM courses and programs are free from discrimination.   In the June 22, 2007 Dear Colleague letter, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights reaffirmed that women, girls, and society as a whole benefits when opportunities in areas such as mathematics and science are increased for women and girls.  “The United States cannot remain educationally, economically, or technologically competitive without the contributions of all of its citizens, and Title IX has made it possible for more women and girls to make such contributions.”
