What I see is that technology and STEM educations in lower grades are boring. Girls are already advanced so much and they do not like those boring stuff.
Personally, I am convinced that software programming skill can be taught effectively in elementary school with proper curriculum. In addition, it is really necessary for anyone to go through universities to become a good coder.

If you won't care about the extra 128x336 pixels, I won't care about the extra 0.4 inches... Or the likely $100 price difference...
your math is horrible.
I have to say that STEM education in US is not good enough. For instance, kids start to use calculators too early. Using calculator is a great way to simplify many computation tasks. However, it deprives kids the opportunities to THINK and ESTIMATE. Both are crucial for STEM jobs.
In universities, I have encountered engineering students who did not know what they should really know. Well, they eventually got their degrees. In my opinion, it is much better off for them to pursue jobs in areas other than STEM.
In late May, Toyota launched 2013 Prius Plug-in MPG Challenge. http://cleantechnica.com/2013/07/02/toyota-introduces-2013-prius-plug-in-mpg-challenge/. "To qualify for the challenge, participants must drive at least 500 miles during the 30-day period and at least 75 miles each week. At the end of each 30-day period, judges will examine the Prius trip computer to see who achieved the highest MPG in each wave."
It turned out the winner achieved 356MPG. http://pressroom.toyota.com/releases/toyota+eco-savvy+influencers+2013+prius+mpg+challenge.htm
Hardworking and knowledgeable students get good marks. Then, they move into good universities and get good jobs.
In fact, any paradigm advocates differentiation and tracking reinforces inequality.
Is inequality wrong or right? Where is the boundary?
Lenovo and FutureWei (HuaWei) had been banned for a long while. I have been very surprised to see that China is starting to talk about boycott CSCO and maybe, AAPL right now.
Apparently, the meeting between Xi and Obama was not going well.

1) Can someone bring guns to school and practice shooting?
Even it is a scientific experiment, there must be certain conditions to limit the scope / location / time that the experiment should be performed.

Moderators, could you please add information to your original post? It will help discussion.
That is why welfare states in EU are in deep financial trouble.
In general, one job to support a whole family is not a norm for human race. The easy life will tax future generation heavily.
My goverment takes 45% of my wages in taxes and I still can support whole family with one job + supproting old mother (widow) in former communist state. That is how we do things in Europe...
