A report has found "little improvement" in elementary and secondary science education in the United States since 2005, and that that is adversely affecting the economy, according to USA Today. The "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" report found that math and science education in the US ranks 48th in the world. Employers, then, are looking elsewhere for qualified workers. "The real point is that we have to have a well-educated workforce to create opportunities for young people," the National Academy of Engineering Charles Vest tells USA Today. "Otherwise, we don't have a chance."
