A unique view of 2012
Kumar Garg is a Senior Advisor to the Deputy Director at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy focusing on education and broader innovation policy.
In particular, Kumar leads President Obama’s “Educate to Innovate” campaign to improve science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM). As part of Educate to Innovate, which already has secured over $700 million in private sector commitments, Mr. Garg works with a broad range of industry, foundations, philanthropists, states, non-profits, professional societies, and federal agencies to build on the President’s call to action.
Prior to his time in government, Kumar worked on behalf of parents and children seeking educational reform as an education lawyer and advocate. He served as a Supervising Clinical Lecturer at Yale Law School, supervising students in complex litigation in education. Kumar received a B.A. from Dartmouth College in political science and a law degree from Yale Law School.
Who says Congress disagrees about everything? Yesterday, the House of Representative voted 370-2 to pass a resolution drawing congratulatory attention to President Obama’s efforts to improve science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
At the 2010 White House Egg Roll yesterday, preschoolers and students had the opportunity to learn some science, with the South Lawn of the White House as their laboratory setting.
