Re: science eduction

Americans' answers to a set of science knowledge questions does not score 
the worst in the first world, although we are not near the top. All nations 
are mediocre, with the Japanese down at the bottom 
(www.nsf.gov/statistics/seind06/append/c7/at07-10.pdf). Surveys indicate that 
Americans' interest in 
science (or what they think is science) is about as high as that of other 
first world countries. And three quarters of Americans believe in something 
paranormal, have not been able to find comparable data for other countries.
