Education & Workforce
American society is grappling with inequalities in education, housing, workforce development, and more, but a fair government can ensure everyone prospers while leaving nobody behind.

The United States has a longstanding trend of underinvesting in education R&D and the development of a STEM workforce that can effectively be deployed to solve today’s challenges. This threatens America’s national security and competitiveness, and hampers our ability to lead across myriad economic sectors.

FAS envisions a future where all learners and workers can access pathways to the STEM workforce and are prepared to rise to the challenges of the future, allowing the United States to lead across myriad economic sectors and bolster its national security. We advocate for innovative and evidence-based approaches to education and workforce pathways to help realize that future.
