Bush urges students study more math and science

The president's "American Competitiveness Initiative" proposes to bolster basic research at government laboratories, improve math and science instruction in public schools and stimulate corporate technological innovations.

Bush talked how students need to study more math and science if they want to be trained for a job that actually exists.

He said, "Take a look at math and science. I'm sure they're saying, you know kind of, 'They're nerd patrol'. It's not. It's the future. The future is engineering and physics and chemistry and math."

This is, of course, very true. More and more jobs in the future require more and more math and science. And if there aren't US workers to do them, the jobs may very well go to China and India.
