From Make: Online :

"Scientists and engineers ought to stand side by side with athletes and entertainers as role models"

Imagine what would happen if we spent the same amount of money on science education in high school that we spend on the dozen students that 'make the team'. Swap cheer leaders for computer programs. Not new bleachers but a new chemistry lab instead. Think about it. The future of a thousands of students versus a few dozen whose future evaporates as soon as their athletic skills do. Now that's the kind of world I would love to see...sigh.
