Let's Get Serious about Teaching Science to People in Power

Like a lot of my blogs, I tend to write too much, but this is the first time I've tried to articulate the following ideas, so please forgive me if the first part is not too useful. You can skip to the part that begins in blue to get to the real "meat" of this blog. I taught science in Brooklyn, NY,... Sign in to see full entry.

It's like being naked in public-Brainstorming for my educational philosophy
