Congressman: Poor Science Education Could Unravel U.S. Economy
Science education in the United States is broken. So says Congressman Bart Gordon, chair of the House Committee on Science and Technology in a scathing criticism that he wrote for the Spring issue of Issues in Science and Technology. Gordon argues that China and India will crush the United States unless there are substantial improvements to American science education.
Rather than offering training in stagnant fields of science and engineering, Gordon believes that students should be urged to study frontier areas of science like systems biology, tissue engineering, and nanoscience.
