Another Reason to STEM

I was forwarded a column at The American Interest on STEM skills and how they pay more by Walter Russell Mead.

Two tidbits I gleaned, personally:

"Both undergraduate and graduate STEMS earn roughly 50% more than their non-STEM counterparts."

Wish I had not encouraged my daughter to go for public relations!

I also liked this advice: 

"What you study is more important than where you study it; students who take solid courses at solid schools will often learn more and do better than students who take empty classes at flashy name schools."
