We are not falling behind in science and technology

Sent to the Los Angeles Daily News.

I agree with Letica Aparicio Diaz: Women should be involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) (Feb. 25).

But we are not "falling behind in talent" in STEM: Studies by Hal Salzman of Rutgers University and Michael Teitelbaum of Harvard University have shown that there is a surplus of qualified engineers and a glut of PhD's in science in the US.

Current US labor statistics indicate that there is no shortage of engineers. There is, however, a shortage of plumbers, construction workers, nurses, elementary school teachers, and electricians.
