The government should invest more money in teaching science than in other subjects for a country development and progress. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

There has been a controversy about whether the government should invest more money in teaching
science
than in other
subjects
. I don't agree with
this
statement, and my reasons will be explained in the following paragraphs.
First
, the demand in the job market is a huge indicator. On account of the development of technology, computers are more closely linked to our daily life;
however
, according to some statistical figures, the jobs that are related to
science
and computer only take up 10% of the whole job market.
On the contrary
, there are around 90% of occupations that are linked with social
science
and
humanities
,
such
as teachers and counsellors. At
this
point, it can be concluded that as far as there are differences between humans and machines, other
subjects
like social
science
and
humanities
are still essential.
Second
, art is
also
important for a country's development and progress.
For example
, some countries, like France, are famous for their
humanities
subjects
,
such
as psychology and history.
Therefore
, those countries have many well-known poets and artworks. Some people even say that medicine, business, and
science
are noble pursuits, and they are vital for today's civilization. But poets, love, and romance make our lives more meaningful.
Third
, your communication skills can be damaged by only studying
science
. It is well-known that employers who studied
humanities
at universities have more chances to achieve success.
Humanities
and social
science
are always around humans,
in other words
, the relationships between people and how to communicate with others.
Hence
, they are good at dealing with different clients.
On the other hand
, if you only study
science
you may be good at dealing with numbers, but you probably will fail in communicating with others. In conclusion, I think all
subjects
are important, the government shouldn't pay special attention to one subject and neglect others.
