From DSC:
Though STEM-related topics are important, I do not subscribe to what I’m seeing so much of these days — i.e. that STEM-related programs are funded, supported, and heavily marketed — and all you other programs out there…well…hit the road.

Maybe this is why 25-30% of students (nationwide) are dropping out of school…it’s not their passion; it doesn’t interest them.
