Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, has just announced his full support of Change the Equation.

This is shortly after US Presdient Barrack Obama launches the Change the Equation, which is a non-profit, not-partisan, CEO-led initiative to “solve America’s innovation problem.”

Zuckerberg, a few hours ago, posted on his status update on Facebook.

“Our mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected – and we need to find the best talent to get there. That’s why Facebook is proud to support the launch of the Change the Equation.”

Change the Equation is being led by former Intel CEO Craig Barrett, , Xerox CEO Ursula Burns, Eastman Kodak CEO Antonio Perez, Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt, and Sally Ride Science CEO Sally Ride.

It is a one of a kind and promising partnership coalition of over 100 companies, which includes Facebook and Google.

The Change the Equation is particularly dedicated to improve science, math, engineering, and technology (STEM) education performance in order to solve America’s innovation problem.

In the published speech of US President Barrack Obama in the Whitehouse, he mentioned that “one assessment shows American 15-year-olds now rank 21st in science and 25th in math when compared to their peers around the world.”
