The Future for STEM Is Grim: Why That Is True!...How to Fix It!
by George Lopac, Jr.
About the Book
This book is a look into America’s future. Analyzing America’s abuse of the educational process and its indifferent attitude toward monitoring technology development, author George Lopac, Jr. hereby addresses a subject which, to America’s great detriment, is otherwise largely ignored.
Our nation’s waning ability to develop STEM skill sets is hampering our ability to compete in a global market driven by super technology. Paradigm shifts are therefore critical to America’s future. Through this book, Lopac offers two new paradigms that will keep America’s development of STEM skill sets in sync with the development of global super technology skill sets.
