a call to improve science and technology education

In a letter published in The New York Times today, ASME Executive Director Thomas G. Loughlin responds to a Times editorial on Oct. 26 by calling on a coalition of public and private sector leaders to step up efforts to support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
“We must address this issue comprehensively if we are to inspire the next generation to take up the engineering profession as an ideal way to help make the world a better place,” Loughlin said. Further, engineering has the potentional to “unlock students’s imaginations and to make their abstract science and math lessons come to life,” he said.

    Three recent surveys of Republican primary voters suggest significant divides in support for Ms. Palin based on the educational attainment of

    the voter. A poll released this morning by Marist College show Ms. Palin as the first choice of 17 percent of Republicans who have not

    graduated from college, giving her a slight lead among that group. But her support is just 7 percent among Republican college graduates,

    which placed her fifth behind Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingirch and Chris Christie.
