4. Also, be careful when comparing to other countries

Many of those countries limit who can go to college and life decisions are made early on, closing doors to many options when a person is young.

On my reading list, so I haven't read it, but important ideas: http://www.amazon.com/Defense-Liberal-Education-Fareed-Zakaria/dp/0393247686/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1428512725&sr=1-1&keywords=in+defense+of+a+liberal+education

I know there are plenty of studies that show, for example, how learning music complements learning math. We can't be single-minded in our support of STEM that we lose the rest of who we are.
