An Act To Increase Technology and Engineering Education for Grades 7 to 12


This bill is a concept draft pursuant to Joint Rule 208.

This bill proposes to enact measures to enhance technology and engineering education for students in grades 7 to 12. The measures include, but are not limited to:

1. Changing the industrial arts/technology teacher endorsement to a technology and engineering endorsement and amending the endorsement requirements. The amended endorsement requirements would grandfather all current teachers who hold an industrial arts/technology endorsement and make them technology and engineering teachers. The amended endorsement requirements would also allow a college graduate with an engineering degree to obtain a technology and engineering endorsement; and

2. Creating 3 categories of science endorsements: life science, physical science and technology and engineering.
