Day Old Bread

It’s a Bomb!

STEM Gap = JOB Gap

I’ve always admired and appreciated how involved Kelly was with the schools that Evan and Christopher attended – she was on every PTO, every committee, and started more programs, enrichments and fundraisers than I can even count. I’m proud of her.

But no matter what school our kids go to – public, private, charter, at-home – they will always be taught ‘day-old’ technology because the pace of change in technology moves light years faster than any school system.

Our STEM challenge is real and it is now. Do not lull yourself into thinking that because your kiddo is going to a STEM school that it is somehow adequate.

Here are the facts on how Colorado compares to all 50 status in a recent report from Great Education Colorado:


  • 43rd    Rank in per-pupil spending
  • 41st     Rank in reading gap
  • 45th    Rank in math gap

Here’s a quote from U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colorado, former superintendent of Denver Public Schools: “We’ve done an incredible job at making sure that math and science is some of the most boring teaching we do, but when kids can see it, touch it, that’s life-changing.”

Silicon STEM Programs will be life-changing.
