The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, April 14, 1987 • 11A Research and education helps our competitiveness By HARLEY O. STAGGERS, JR. There are thousands of scientists and mathematicians at work in West Virginia. They can be found at terminals running complicated computer programs. They can be found in the science lab verifying the results of an experiment. They can be found using mathematical models to solve complicated engineering problems. They are the students that attend our schools. They are the future of our nation. Improving America's competitiveness has fast become the overriding concern of 1987. In the Congress, the legislation we consider has a common theme -- improving our competitiveness; creating jobs and economic opportunity. This is true whether it is the Highway Bill to improve roads, or the Trade Bill to level the playing field and improve job skills. Education and research play a key role in the efforts to improve our competitiveness. Significant investments will be needed to educate and train the nation's next generation of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Science and technology are as essential to our future as they have been to our past. Since World War II, new technology has been responsible for nearly half of all productivity increases. Technology has transformed the workplace. Nearly 15 million Americans use computer terminals at work; future generations of computers will work at the speed of light and thousands of times faster than those now in ~,se. Still, only about seven out of every thousand Ameican students receive degrees in engineering, while in Japan the rate is 40 for every thousand. The number of entering freshmen indicating an intention to major in the basic sciences fell 38 percent inthe nine years ending in 1984. The federal government must lead the effort to reverse the downward trend in research and education. In the past, the Cong(ess has enacted legislation that put computers in West Virginia classrooms. The National Science Foundation helps support the research at the nation's colleges and universities. There are other federal programs that support science and math programs. The House Budget Committee recently adopted a budget for fiscal year 1988 that continues the federal commitment to science and technology. Federal programs will help improve our long rang national economic competitiveness. The nation's space program will continue to move forward. We can continue to encourage the young scientists and mathematicians in West Virginia to conitinue with their work. They are the future of our nation.
