Why we shouldn't push students to specialize in STEM too early
from PBS Newshour (commentary)
Annette Jacobson, a contributor for PBS Newshour, writes: "This fall, as I have for nearly 29 years as an educator and academic advisor, I'll face freshmen engineering students who are certain of what they're going to do with the rest of their lives. Then they take a few classes, join some clubs, look around – and some will realize this is not what they expected and may not be what they want. They're at a loss. Suddenly, all their preparation to follow a single, narrow path has done them more harm than good."
