    a disagreeable statement:

    There’s clearly an immediate need for youth
    to develop skills in science, technology, engineering and math. A failure to do so puts our country, our communities and our children
    at risk of not competing successfully in a global economy. America is at risk of losing its leadership in technology and innovation as
    baby boomer retirements deplete the science and technology workforce by 50 percent over the next decade.

    microsoft,apple,etc are still running the technology in the world ,but this statement could be agreeable maybe in the future if another foreign country make better techno productions that are strong enough to put down the u.s techno productions

      You are very correct. This is what I love about circulating around Staten Island schools educating students about technology and engineering. I can create small sparks of interest in the field.
