Mediaplanet today announces the launch of this December edition of “Future of Education.” This campaign advocates for the importance of representation in storytelling as well as encouraging learners of all ages and backgrounds to imagine themselves succeeding in STEM.

The National PTA stresses the importance of diverse children’s literature and give tips on building a diverse library. “All children deserve to see themselves represented on the pages of the stories they read. Books should also introduce our kids to others who are different from them. They provide a unique opportunity to help children learn about, appreciate, and honor other cultures. They learn to be empathetic and informed members of their communities who fight back again racism and other injustices.”

The print component of “Future of Education” is distributed within today’s edition of USA Today in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC/Baltimore markets, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, San Francisco, South Florida, Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, North/Central Florida, Carolinas, Nashville, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Seattle with a circulation of approximately 200,000 copies and an estimated readership of 600,000. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

Astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli applauds all the adults helping inspire future generations in STEM. “Thank you to all the parents and educators out there that are working to help kids of all backgrounds and genders realize that they, too, can be in these fields and do these things.”

Jimmy Fallon encourages all families to read with their children. “Laughing when they read something funny out loud is so important,” he said. “It builds their confidence and makes them want to read more. It’s one of the most important skills that they’ll learn as a kid.”

This campaign was made possible with the support of the National PTA, Association of American Colleges & Universities, Society of STEM Women of Color, Women in Technology International (WITI), ChickTech, Women in Aerospace, Black Collegiate Gaming Association, American School Counselor Association, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, AniBlock Puzzle, DigitalCrafts, and Makedo.
