Want to improve the economy?

Improve science education!

•U.S. mathematics and science K-12 education ranks 48th worldwide.
•49% of U.S. adults don't know how long it takes for the Earth to circle the sun.
•China has replaced the United States as the world's top
I think that there can be no downsides to good science education; it promotes critical thinking, skepticism, rational, intelligent decision making, patience... the list goes on and on.
