Policymakers and industry leaders alike in California exhort the need for a future workforce trained in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Such a workforce relies on a strong foundation of STEM training for K-14 students. As more policymakers debate new programs and instruments to increase STEM training in K-14 education in California, the need for first-hand input from teachers with current classroom experience was clear.

Given this emerging need, CCST helped give California STEM teachers a new voice by creating the California Teacher Advisory Council (CalTAC) in 2005.

A NATIONAL MODEL FOR CALIFORNIA

CalTAC's overarching goal was to strengthen California's teacher workforce and increase students' success in STEM disciplines.

Modeled after the National Teacher Advisory Council, CalTAC members were recruited from among award-winning, accomplished teachers from the K-14 system in California. CalTAC members include National Board Certified teachers, and those with membership on State and national committees.
