Important Initiative On Science And Math Education By The Obama Administration

President Obama is to be applauded for promoting a joint public-private initiative on math and science education, which provides for $250 million to improve American students’ knowledge and interest in both areas, where the US ranks in the 20s worldwide, way behind many other nations.

The need for more math and science teachers is urgent, and the nation cannot advance if we do not have more young people go into both fields, both as teachers and as professionals.

Medicine, energy, and security are among the areas in which the country desperately needs more motivation and commitment if the nation is to face the challenges of the 21st century.
