The Science Education Myth - Yahoo! News

For those who have read the World is Flat I thought you might be interested in this one even if the jury is still out.

The Science Education Myth - Yahoo! News:
"The authors of the report, the Urban Institute's Hal Salzman and Georgetown
University professor Lindsay Lowell, show that math, science, and reading test
scores at the primary and secondary level have increased over the past two
decades, and U.S. students are now close to the top of international rankings.
Perhaps just as surprising, the report finds that our education system actually
produces more science and engineering graduates than the market demands."
