+ - What role do the Humanities play on Slashdot?

Submitted by raque
raque (457836) writes "The "NYTimes has this story on the growing hostility towards the Humanities and the Liberal Arts in American Education. I see two questions here: What does this mean for Slashdot? We're about STEM here, but the method used is the written word. Without Humanities how well will we be able to write? The second is that tech employees move up the corporate ladder the "tech" becomes less and less important. IT managers don't program, they write memos, proposals, email after email. It would would seem to me that success in moving up the ladder depends on skills developed in the Humanities classroom more then the CS lab."
