Prioritizing STEM Education

May 22, 2014

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is increasingly becoming a priority for schools throughout the U.S. Do you think more should be done to get kids interested in these career paths?

Yes: 81.8%
No: 18.2%
Maybe/Unsure: 0%


With the insane cost of college it would be nice to see the graduates qualify [for] jobs that will pay them something.

I spent 40 years after getting my BSChem and running labs and businesses for other people, with no financial rewards. Scientists are treated like buffoons in this country. It is smarter to become a mechanic.

We need to stop pampering our kids & expecting the mininum out of them, get them up to speed with the other countries as they are the next generation to run our country!

What they are doing now is not enough comparing to the rest of the world. We don't [want] our children fall behind.
