Is the STEM Crisis a Myth?
This author thinks so
"To parse the simultaneous claims of both a shortage and a surplus of STEM workers, we’ll need to delve into the data behind the debate, how it got going more than a half century ago, and the societal, economic, and nationalistic biases that have perpetuated it. And what that dissection reveals is that there is indeed a STEM crisis—just not the one everyone’s been talking about."
So what now? Personally I enjoy math, but how many people would major in engineering if there was no need for engineers?
