Rep. Cuellar Calls for More Science and Math Graduates, Increased Investment in STEM

Rep. Cuellar spoke at Harmony Public Schools’ breakfast reception in Washington, D.C. 

Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, February 26th, Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) joined other Texas Congressional colleagues at a breakfast reception hosted by Harmony Public Schools, a charter school system in Texas that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, to call for an increase in American graduates in STEM fields and increased investment in science and mathematics education. This morning’s “Harmony Capitolizing STEM” breakfast event served as an introduction of Harmony Public Schools’ presence in Washington, with a new HarmonySchool of Excellence being established in the DC metro area later this year.   

“STEM is the future of job growth in our country,” said Congressman Cuellar. “Almost all of the 30 fastest-growing occupations in the next decade will require at least some background in STEM.  We must encourage more young people, especially women and minority students, to pursue careers in science and mathematics.  This kind of investment in education at an early stage all the way through college will create jobs and put American innovation on the map.”
