One Response to NY Times Editorial about STEM in the US
Comment from ReSET Volunteer Rich Repplier:
From the NY Times editorial: “The science establishment has long
viewed a high abandonment rate as part of a natural winnowing.” Where
in the world did that nonsense come from?
The other bad practice is that this country has traditionally
convinced young girls that science is a career they don’t want. That
means we’re cutting out half the population!
If America is serious about competing in the world, we’d better damn
well stop this stuff, now. We can’t afford it anymore.
