Science and Engineering Indicators 2006


"Citing a "changed world" in the global picture for science and technology (S&T), the National Science Board today publicly released its biennial report to the President, Congress and the nation, Science and Engineering (S&E) Indicators 2006. In doing so, members of the board appearing in a Capitol Hill briefing said that the growing international competition in S&T, previously expressed in terms of "potential," has now become "reality." Against this backdrop, the panelists expressed concern that today's K-12 students in science and mathematics are not improving their learning relative to international peers, boding a potential loss for the United States of its global prominence in discovery and innovation."
