    Of course, other areas are important beyond "STEM," but this is a STEM initiative because our capacity in STEM is miserable compared to the rest of the world.  We already do create some pretty good artists.

    The bigger problem is that our society now equates a good education with knowing "stuff" (as in facts) and not being able to do "stuff" (as in think).

    Schools are just a reflection of that.  We won't do better in education until society actually values learning.
