Is STEM a lie? Should science, technology, engineering, and mathematics be taught in school?

A few days ago I asked a question of the community as I was seeking ideas into how to implement STEM into an English as a Second/New Language classroom. Most of the comments contained some good ideas and thoughts that I will be seeking to implement. A couple of the people who responded surprised me, as they contended that STEM should actually not be taught in school, or at least not in the manner that it currently is. I am interested to find out what others think regarding this issue.

The conversation that sparked this question is: http://www.ted.com/conversations/19495/what_are_your_ideas_to_inspire.html
