Romney talks up science education - does he mean it?
Romney's speech at Raytheon, which apparently had all the trappings of a presidential campaign event, noted the importance of science education in America if we are to remain competitive.
Well, on that, I agree with him. But the devil is of course in the details. So here's a detail I've been thinking about lately: school boards around the country are trying to force the pseudo-theory of "intelligent design" down the throats of science students who should instead be learning about actual science, namely, evolutionary biology.
I wonder what Mitt Romney thinks about that, and whether he would speak out against "intelligent design" as part of his campaign to boost science education. Let's ask him.
