I am certainly a strong proponent of STEM education - I am an E(ngineer) and am grateful for a quality education with dedicated teachers.
I am also a product of the arts, and thrive in my workplace because I know how to think outside of the box to find solutions to unique problems.
The problem that I have noticed is that STEM teachers who come to school through non-traditional methods after years working in technological industries are not well accepted or supported by those who come up through traditional educational methods. This is the largest problem I see with the 100Kin10 push. Good luck, good work, but come in with eyes wide open.
