MBR believes that investing in education is essential for the future development of the workforce, the continued strength of the economy and quality of life in Massachusetts. The Roundtable and its members are committed to high standards for academic achievement and accountability, and dedicated to the enhancement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in teaching and learning.
MBR continues to provide leadership on the implementation of the state’s STEM agenda and advocates for the alignment of the state’s workforce development and economic development strategies. MBR’s Education and Workforce Development Task Force has identified several priorities for 2014 including: continued leadership in state’s STEM agenda, including implementation of the new STEM Plan and codification of the STEM agenda; participation in MassCAN, an initiative to expose all students in Massachusetts to computer science; developing a shared education agenda within the business community; continuing to push for a coordinated, collaborative workforce development system that is aligned with the needs of industry; and promoting early childhood education with a focus on its link with STEM.
