Diane Ravitch stresses the importance of science education, especially for New York City’s school children, in a Nov. 21 op/ed in the New York Sun.

“All of our city’s children need to understand the principles of science, which are so important to their futures and to the future of our nation,” she writes. “Ignorance of science is inexcusable in an age when computer science, medicine, pharmaceuticals, and other technology-related fields are our most dynamic growth-sectors.”
