“Students often face punishment from parents when they get a bad report card. But what happens when our school system gets one? The latest national ‘report card’ is out, and it shows that our schools are failing Americans when it comes to science education. … Economic research shows no clear correlation between public education spending and outcomes. If throwing more taxpayer money at the problem could accomplish anything, we wouldn’t have such abysmal results.” (05/26/21)
