Science, math skills failing U.S. economy

http://bostonherald.com/news_opinion...ing_us_economy

"America’s K-12 and post-secondary education systems are failing in their mission to prepare our nation’s children and young adults in science, technology, engineering and math, the STEM fields. And it is a national disaster in the making.

Today, American students score 23rd in math and 31st in science when compared with 65 other top industrial countries. And yet a recent study by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology found, “economic forecasts point to a need for producing, over the next decade, approximately 1 million more college graduates in STEM fields than expected under current assumptions.”
