Having a well-educated population is key to having good scientists to do the research about which I write. The Bush administration is doing everything in its power to prevent this from happening. Jeff gives us a lovely example.

Education is one of those things that everyone in the US pretty much agrees is essential, but are mostly unwilling to spend any money on. Until we get over that, America will continue to fall further and further behind the rest of the world. We must find a way to stop that trend, because I do not have any desire to raise my children in a third-world country.
