Of course, surveys say Sci Ed needs more support!

I subscribe to a number of different news feeds for science education in the popular press.  I came across this one yesterday , part of a campaign by Bayer to promote science education.  It essentially finds that both teachers and parents believe that hands-on experiences help their students and children learn science better.  Both would "do" more hands-on experiments if they had the time or the resources.  Of course teachers and parents would do more experiments.  But it takes ingenuity and flexibility to figure out how to make this happen in the absence of both a lot of time as well as a lot of money or a storage room for a bunch of supplies and equipment.  It's our jobs as parents and educators to make this happen, despite the legitimate obstacles that we all face.  See article below for more info.
