Dr.┬áMohammad H. Qayoumi, president of San Jose State University, said this about STEM education in a piece for the Huffington Post: “Embracing technology is critically important, as 21st-century jobs will increasingly require an educated and highly skilled workforce. Over the next 10 years, 5 out of 8 new jobs and 8 out of 10 of the highest paying positions in the United States will be in careers related to science, technology, education, and math (STEM) subjects.

But in a decade the United States could face a shortage of one million STEM graduates. The nation’s economic vitality hangs in the balance.”
