While I don't disagree that the fad of everyone needs to be a programmer is over blow, I don't see anything resembling justification for this opinion. It has never been important for most of the population to be heavily invested in math, and I don't think that's a bad thing or something that is likely to change.

It's also worth noting that literally everyone spends a large proportion of their education learning maths (although most don't really get to anywhere interesting), compared to absolutely no computer science or programming most places.
