The Value of Algebra

There is an opinion piece in the Scientific American, which talks about the growing number of USA students who are choosing to bypass math in their education.  More corporations are going to India and China for people with the required skills... it's not so much the lower salaries as it is the lack of skills in the United States.  The summary of the piece said

No algebra=No calculus=No science=No technology=We're totally *&$#FRTDG!!!!!

It's scary.
