How important is universal science education to the future of American success in the world market?
The late astronomer Carl Sagan said, "We have built a society dependent on science and technology, but are structuring our educational system so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a recipe for disaster". Do you agree, or disagree, and why?
Carl Helrich commented
We need some clarity on what we mean by "universal science education."
I agree with Scott; the first question goes to the right theme, but is too easy for an insincere candidate to deflect and pivot. The follow up is better.
Again, too easy to give an unilluminating answer.
