Neil Degrasse Tyson
I don't want students who could make the next major breakthrough in renewable energy sources or space travel to have been taught that anything they don't understand, and that nobody yet understands, is divinely constructed and therefore beyond their intellectual capacity. The day that happens, Americans will just sit in awe of what we don't understand, while we watch the rest of the world boldly go where no mortal has gone before. - Neil DeGrasse Tyson
I got this quote from The Hateful Atheist. I think it is brilliant and sums up a lot of my feelings about science education.
