Re: Science education

American interest in science is very strong.
If you're running into personal experiences that slant you to an opinion, 
that's just a small-percentage coincidence.

I think many college students that have a technical aptitude often go into 
engineering due to the higher financial rewards.

The current crash of the economy for the past several years may have made it 
near-impossible for some people to undertake a vocation in the sciences - 
please take that into consideration.

I would also think the problems of getting good teachers and retaining them may 
also keep alot of children from otherwise developing an interest at the 
grade-school level that they deserve - again, that's an economic issue.

My experience with kids and young adults shows a keen interest in the sciences 
- especially towards zoology, recently.
