Well, it's a good idea to develop more classes for technology-related subjects BUT it's a shame to ignore the needs for education in the arts and social sciences too.
So many engineers around here are culturally illiterate when it comes to the arts or history or geography or etc etc etc. This world needs people who can think about more than electrical circuitry and computer development.

I agree, STEM and the Arts have fed off of each other throughout history, they should be combined in a STEAM curriculum with history. My all time favorite Science program is Jacob Bronowski's "The Ascent of Man" which explores Science in the context of cultural evolution.

If this extra so called "thinking" that illnumerates possess lead one to make ignorant statements such as "So many engineers around here are culturally illiterate...", then indeed Mary, How does your garden grow?
Perhaps Mary can go buy a vowel with her newfound tax dollars.
