As states continue to develop new plans under ESSA, all members of the STEM community have an opportunity to (1) share why STEM is essential in ESSA and (2) highlight individual stories from states and programs.

The Op-Ed Toolkit provides you with tips for writing and placing your commentary piece, as well as sample language to start your draft. The Toolkit includes the following sections:
- Messaging Guidance
- Messaging Architecture
- Tips for Op-Ed Placement
- Sample Op-Ed/Commentary Piece
