Cultural mores of the upper class and getting ahead.
No offense to MIT or CalTech, but they can't by themselves solve the talent shortage in math-science disciplines. That's because the shortages projected are so great that colleges are being challenged to bring into the STEM fields students who would never apply to MIT and who would never think of a science or engineering career. For community colleges that serve disadvantaged areas, there are huge challenges involved in recruiting and graduating these students. Many have received inadequate educations in high schools and don't know anyone who works in science.
