From the November 11, 2013 issue of The Chronicle of Philanthropy: “For the United States to maintain its global supremacy in innovation, the commonplace goes, the nation must crank out more and more college graduates in STEM programs—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Otherwise a continuing shortage of workers in those fields will sink the nation and its economy beneath the surface of an ever-flatter world, overrun by lower-paid foreigners who have outpaced us in STEM education. Behind the hand-wringing sits the very real question of where the next wave of American jobs will come from.” For more, go to http://chronicle.com/article/The-STEM-Crisis-Reality-or/142879/
