SmartBrief reports that with STEM funding on hold at the federal level, schools are turning to corporations, foundations and private investors to help fund new initiatives, consultant Doug Haller writes in this blog post.

"Regardless of their motivations for investment, corporations, foundations and private investors want to support and invest in effective education efforts," he writes. "To do this, they increasingly expect recipients to provide data demonstrating program efficacy."
