Rising Above The Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future - This report provides the top 10 actions in priority order that federal policymakers could take to enhance science and technology enterprises to ensure that the United States successfully competes, prospers and is secure in the global community of the 21st Century. Two recommendations focus on actions in K12 education (10,000 Teachers, 10 Million Minds) and higher education (Best and Brightest). Also provided are a total of 20 implementation steps for reaching the goals set forth in the recommendations.
