Obama speech - everyone now required to go to college

Obama: Dropping out of high school isn't just quitting on yourself, it's quitting on your country. Highest proportion of college grads in the world by 2020.

This guy is totally on the right track to make education the big pillar of the US long term strategy. But wouldn't this be kind of meaningless if 80% of those grads are poli sci and liberal arts majors? While there is a place for that (it was a decent platform for me to learn Japanese and hone translation skills), it seems like we need more scientists and engineers.
