English term or phrase:Play it forward
Enrollment in college science and engineering programs has been dropping since the '80s, and participation by women is falling off even more rapidly, to about 15% of students. "This is an education catastrophe," he says. The United States spends about as much per capita on education as other countries, Gray says, but low pay and lack of respect for teachers isn't preparing kids to choose technical fields--a decision that's often made by the time they're in fourth grade. "Many students aren't excited about science and technology. Play it forward, and the high-paying jobs are in areas where people have some special expertise." Companies are outsourcing tech work to Asia, India, and Russia because the workforce isn't just cheaper--it's often more talented, Gray says.
