    We need a greater amount of time and resources provided to the Technology Education curriculum in our state. Many schools have only the minimum required middle school 6-8 courses. We need to start earlier and continue on through High School.

    My son is in one of the top 10 STEM schools in the nation - we had to relocate to NY for personal reasons. I have NEVER seen a child more excited about what he is learning in school - STEM offers kids amazing opportunities. It's much needed everywhere.

    Our world revolves around technology it is silly to cut back on technology classes, since it exposes students to so many aspects of their world.
