President Barack Obama’s budget proposal for 2015 includes efforts to reorganize STEM education and bring ed tech training to schools. The budget that he announced on Tuesday, March 4, includes $670 million for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and ConnectED, a federal broadband project designed to reach 99 percent of schools. While STEM appeared in his budget last year, broadband did not. This next fiscal year, Obama wants to spend $170 million on STEM, a drop of $244.70 million from last year’s proposal.
