Issue Date: 2003

Abstract: Would-be reformers in science education must focus on what appears to be a root cause of scientific illiteracy, namely a sort of "corporatist manifesto"--an unwritten ideology that transnational corporations use to control production and consumption to maximize profit. Suggests that this credo is manifested in take-for-granted practices such as standardization, globalization, efficiency, accountability, and technocratic rationalization. Suggests a new democratic science education for the people.
