Report: bad schools threaten California's nanotech dominance
California’s inability to produce a technically skilled work force compromises the state’s standing as a leader in nanotechnology, according to a state-sponsored report released today. But the problem lies as much with state legislators as with its beleaguered public education system, particularly if lawmakers see school cuts as a quick-fix solution to the state’s budget crisis, proponents said. The California Council on Science and Technology was expected to unveil its findings at a briefing for lawmakers today.
