LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — School may be out for Lafayette School Corporation students but that didn't stop teachers and staff from gathering for a discussion with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction Wednesday.
Dr. Jennifer McCormick headed a roundtable discussion on the topic of expanding STEM education. It took place at Sunnyside Intermediate during the 6th annual Lafayette Regional eLearning Conference. McCormick said it's important to make stops across the state to check in with educators. She says one of the big challenges with STEM is finding time to implement it into the curriculum.
"That flexibility and just making sure that we have uninterrupted blocks of time is important to make sure we're successful in STEM. That's going to be critical. We don't have all the answers, but I know many folks across the state are struggling with that, " said McCormick.
School safety and continued education for teachers were also discussed at Wednesday's panel.
