EAST BAY STEM NETWORK: Early Math Education Update
The East Bay STEM Network's campaign to raise public awareness about the importance of early math education was given a boost at the East Bay Economic Development Alliance's 2019 Innovation Awards celebration on March 28 at the Fox Theater in Oakland.
Each of the 400+ attendees received a copy of the Institute's "Math Starts Early" family engagement booklet (now available in English and Spanish). Dr. Leroy Morishita, President of Cal State East Bay, authored an article in the San Francisco Business Times entitled "Early Math Education: Key to Our Innovation Economy", with a call for investment in math education starting in preschool as "essential for the Bay Area's workforce."
Watch for more advocacy as the East Bay STEM Network continues to press on this fundamental educational issue.
