Science Education Gets Noticed by the NYT

The New York Times has an article about the slipping technology lead of the USA and the presidential candidate’s plans to bolster innovation here.

It’s about time.

Antievolution gets a brief mention.

Mr. Obama embraces the theory of evolution and argues that the teaching of intelligent design and other creationist ideas “cloud” a student’s understanding of science. While Mr. McCain says he personally believes in evolution, he has also said children should be taught “all points of view.”

Students should be taught the neutral theory as well as natural selection, but it seems doubtful that McCain was advocating teaching accountable science with that statement.

    This is great, science is an important subjet in our school.
