This article goes very in-depth about the economical reasons STEM is really important RIGHT NOW.  I feel that they make some very good points about the job market and educational system, they do seem to exaggerate a bit on the utmost importance of STEM in the future for all ‘middle-class jobs’.  While I personally doubt that ALL ‘middle-class’ workers will be in STEM fields in the next 10 years, many of them will be, and I hope to help kids get a head start on education.  The public school system is a colossal failure in the STEM fields at the moment, and I’ve met kids who drop out of math as early as fifth grade.  As Brian Kelly writes, “Something has to change.”
