About Change the Equation

Our Mission: Change the Equation works at the intersection of business and education to ensure that all students are STEM literate by collaborating with schools, communities, and states to adopt and implement excellent STEM policies and programs.

CTEq’s corporate members are deeply committed to ensuring more rigorous STEM learning for all PreK-12 students.  STEM literacy opens doors to employment in every industry, sector, and profession, not just in traditional STEM fields – from entry-level jobs that require a certificate or associates’ degree to jobs in the C-Suite.

CTEq’s members are actively engaged in:

  • elevating STEM literacy by advocating evidence-based state policies and practices that are known to produce STEM-literate high school graduates;
  • ensuring high standards through support for Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and other, equally-rigorous standards for all students; and
  • increasing their return on investment by supporting evidence-based high quality STEM learning programs.
