The next governor of Washington will have a unique opportunity to remake our state’s education system, and with it, the futures of generations of young Washingtonians. Whether Republican Rob McKenna or Democrat Jay Inslee wins next month, the new governor must lead the way in preparing our students for bright futures and good jobs by focusing on science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM. Washington ranks No. 1 in the concentration of STEM jobs in the U.S.
