Half and Half = All Bad
What I heard next caused me to lose my stuff-- half saddened, half outraged. The teacher explained that many of her social studies classes are being phased out, in favor of STEM.
Don't get me wrong. Science, technology, engineering and match are important. Those are the skills students need to get good jobs, and I am thrilled we are encouraging young women to enter those fields.
All that STEM knowledge can be rendered irrelevant if we don't produce good citizens. You simply have to know how the world around you works.
Teach STEM. Leave some room for the rest.
