Kerry has told the US Senate that he wants to boost US involvement in the development of education and the development and deployment of STEM skills.
The US is already leading in a number of areas, but President Joe Biden has pledged to “do more” with education, including “put more money into schools and more people into them”.
“We are going to be a great education nation,” he said in a speech in New York.
“And the challenge is, if we do not have the resources, we are going, ‘we have to do it in the US.
We have to get out of the shadow of the UK, and we have to create an environment where we are the leader.
And we are doing that.”
The White House has long supported education and has repeatedly praised the work of the US Department of Education.
Biden, however, has said that he would push to change the way that the US develops its science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates, in particular the number of science and math graduates who go on to become engineers and computer scientists.
In January, the White House released a White Paper outlining its plans to build a workforce for STEM jobs.
There are currently just 3,500 engineering and computer science graduates in the United States.
The number of computer science majors has risen by more than 80% in the past 10 years.
Education secretary Jim Gilmore has previously said the White and Senate bills would “continue to provide support for the nation’s high-quality education, support the US as a leader in the international STEM community, and enable us to lead by example and to help the world become a better place.”
He said that, in addition to improving the quality of American education, the legislation would also make “a significant investment in our ability to educate the next generation of leaders in STEM and in education”.
“This is the right time to invest in the next wave of science, math, engineering, technology and math (STEM)” to help make our country “the global leader in these fields”, Gilmore said in January.
Gilmore has also said that the administration is planning to develop the US’s “largest new research institute to help build an industry of the future”, which will “rebuild our economy” by “developing new manufacturing technologies and manufacturing technologies for healthcare, finance, energy and transportation”.
“The United States will be the world leader in advanced manufacturing, manufacturing and research, and this will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs,” he added.
A key element of the legislation is the White Paper’s call for the US to create a new National Center for Research in Advanced Teaching and Development, which would “provide resources for the United Nations, international agencies, international academic institutions, the private sector and academic institutions to create and support research-based educational programs in science, mathematics, engineering science, and technology and the social sciences”.
This new centre would have the same role as the Department of Commerce’s National Center on Women and Girls, which focuses on advancing women in STEM fields.
According to the White paper, the centre would be “dedicated to fostering research and education in the social, economic, and physical sciences and engineering, as well as engineering and technology, for children and adults in STEM, including the arts, humanities and social sciences, as part of the Nation’s Education, Training and Career Network”.
“It is crucial that we are building on the strengths of the STEM education and workforce infrastructure we have already established to ensure that we provide access to the skills needed to meet the needs of tomorrow’s workforce,” the White document states.
This would be achieved through the creation of a new “Research and Development Office” that would “develop and implement policy and research strategies that promote the integration of science into the development, teaching and research of knowledge and skills in all sectors of our society”.
The White paper also said the new office would “be responsible for the development” of a “STEM Research Institute” that “will be dedicated to advancing the nation as a global leader and advancing the development for STEM education”.
A number of other White Papers were released by the US administration before the US Congress.
The US Department for Education also released a report in February outlining how it planned to boost the US’ “STEM education and skills”.
In it, it said that a new Office of Science and Technology Policy, which was set up by the Obama administration, was going to “develop a roadmap to modernise our education system and support the implementation of the president’s vision to make America the leader in STEM”.
It said the Office of Technology Policy would be responsible for “allocating funds for STEM research to the best-funded and most effective research institutes”.
Additionally, the administration said it was “committed to expanding access to high-tech and advanced learning in the nation through new federal partnerships” and that the
