Steamed Up over STEM

What's all the fuss and focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in our schools? It's spread beyond earlier efforts to proactively help our young women not feel stigmatized if they enjoy an equation or two, and now threatens to spread a cumulonimbus over our educational system. Where are the Arts in all this? Not even chopped liver -- that might qualify as culinary science. I believe that, when you get beyond all the flash of STEM's appeal, it's components can, upon reflection, be seen as progeny of the Arts. The necessary components of abstraction, classification and description rely on humankind's unique language abilities, as do the symbols in formulas and theorems. Science could not have developed without the fundamental dance of discourse and recorded evidence that developed from the advancement of oral storytelling into poetry to literature...and of course, how could we survive any of this without humor?
