Creativity Matters, Right?

Today’s demand for a high skilled workforce in the areas of science, technology  engineering  and math (STEM) is making an immediate impact on our society and what we value in education.  Changes in state and federal budgets further illustrates this shift our society is making in educational priorities.  I am starting to wonder what will be the long term affects of these changes.  How will they impact our society’s ability to create, innovate, communicate, or simply express the qualities that truly make us human? Don’t get me wrong, as a Physics educator, I am all for the investment in STEM.  I would just like to see more emphasis on the value and versatility in cultivating one’s creativity.
