That Has to Change

The New York Times has a nice, but short, profile on the CTO of the United States of America and the lede stood out to me in particular:

President Obama’s top technology adviser cringes when she hears highly educated adults say how bad they are at science and math, particularly when they do so in front of children.

“That has to change,” the adviser, Megan J. Smith, firmly told a group of teachers at the White House not long ago. “We would never say that about reading.”

No they wouldn’t. That’s gotta change.
