McAuliffe helps add technology to the state’s education goals

Legislation has been introduced ensuring technology is part of the state’s education goals.

To support this effort Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D—Bothell, chair of the Early Learning & K-12 Education Committee introduced SB 5392, updating the education goals to read as follows:

"(To) know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics; social, physical and life sciences; technology; civics and history, including different cultures and participation in representative government; geography; arts; and health and fitness."

“Students live in a world linked to technology and it’s past time we formally recognize this as part of our education goals,” said McAuliffe in a press release. “Many schools are already leading the way with innovative science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs. Updating our goals should inspire others to follow.”
