The importance of a basic knowledge of science can not be over looked. It helps us understanding the world around us and science affects most aspect of life so some knowledge of it is needed to get along. It is helps students with and interest in science to pursue a scientific career by helping them discover that interest. There are problems with science education for example many pre collage science classes are taught by teachers who did not major or minor in math or science so as a result classes are often of low quality a often uninteresting. Children are often thought only facts and theory and are and not how to actually do science. Even worst they are often not taught how to critically evaluate scientific claims but to just accept them unquestioned.
