Education Based on “STEM”

An excellent article appeared in the Washington Post about the dangers of focusing on
STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) as opposed to a broader liberal arts
education.  Being a philosophy major, I agree that focusing too much on specific technical
disciplines rather than a more well-rounded education does not put future generations at
advantage in the world; students should be taught how to think creatively and critically
and not be limited to learning specific technical skills.
