The need for investment in science education is not just an issue here in the U.S., according to an article in the Guardian (U.K.) on British Chancellor Gordon Brown’s 2006 budget. As part of the Labour government’s annual budget, Brown announced plans for an extra 3,000 specialist science teachers in an effort to halt the falling numbers of students taking science subjects at school. Also includes an article on teachers’ feedback to the chancellor’s “education budget.”
