US595 - National STEM Education Tax Incentive for Teachers
America is currently facing a shortage of math and science teachers. The lack of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) teachers is taking a serious toll on the amount of STEM students we produce. There is also a stark gender gap among our high-tech workforce -- women represent 43 percent of our workforce, but make up only 23 percent of scientists and engineers. Kirsten introduced the National STEM Education Tax Incentive for Teachers Act that provides STEM teachers who work in low-income, high-need schools a tax credit to cover 10 percent of their undergraduate tuition.
