Google endorses AAG resolution on geography education

US: Google Inc. endorsed a resolution calling on Congress to “include authorisations and appropriations for geography education consistent with other core academic subjects for K-12, as part of a reauthorised Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).”

The resolution issued by the Association of American Geographers (AAG) also supports geography programmes such as the Teaching Geography is Fundamental Act, and urges the Obama Administration to include geography education as part of its proposals for improving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education.

A bipartisan group of current and former high-ranking government officials, other key individuals, and major national organisations and corporations also signed the resolution.
