After a year of study, an expert panel released its report evaluating the federal investment in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET) education programs on December 1.

Titled The Federal Investment in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology Education: Where Now? What Next?, the panel's report to the Committee on Education and Human Resources (CEHR) of the Federal Coordinating Council for Science, Engineering, and Technology (FCCSET) calls for “a new culture of interaction, communication, and coordination within and among all the agencies.”
