Mike Gravel on Families & Children

Libertarian for President; Former Dem. Senator (AK); withdrew from Presidential primary July 2019

 


US ranks low worldwide in child literacy and child health

In education, the US ranks 49th in literacy worldwide, and 28th out of 40 developed countries in mathematical literacy. Europe surpassed us a decade ago as the largest producer of scientific literature. Yet in 2004 Congress cut funds to the National Science Foundation, resulting in the issuance of 1000 fewer research grants. However, the most devastating statistic for our nation’s future is the fact that 30% of America’s children do not finish high school.
