Quotes from Governor Mitt Romney on Science Education

  • “Massachusetts has a choice,” Romney said. “We can provide our kids with a first-rate science education today or we can learn to live with a second-rate economy tomorrow.”

 

2003

 

  • “Massachusetts is home to cutting-edge research and industries. Companies locate and stay here to tap into an unparalleled R&D sector supported by nearly 120 colleges and universities, the highest concentration of academic institutions in the world.”

 

2004

 

  • “Massachusetts has some of the best schools and teachers in the nation,” Romney said, speaking tonight from the historic House Chamber at the State House. “Education reform, adopted a decade ago, raised standards and closed funding gaps. But it was the first step, not the last. Let us now take every step, to prepare every child, for an ever more competitive future.”

 

2005

  • “We’re making progress, there’s no doubt about it, but we have more work to do. These test scores reflect the hard work and creativity of our students, teachers and schools, but they also reveal that some are still struggling. It is increasingly critical that we advance bold reforms to ensure greater accountability and performance in every classroom.”

 

  • “Our Presidential Award nominees set a great example, not only for educators in Massachusetts, but for the nation. Distinguished math and science teachers like these are the critical components of a public education system that will prepare us for the next century, and they deserve to be recognized for their hard work, creativity and dedication.”

 

  • “Massachusetts has a choice. We can provide our kids with a first-rate science education today or we can learn to live with a second-rate economy tomorrow.”

 

  • “Today’s students are tomorrow’s scientists and engineers. We need to ask ourselves whether our students are being given the tools to preserve the state’s workforce advantage and thrive in tomorrow’s science based economy.”

 

  • “When a school is labeled as chronically underperforming, that’s not a punishment but a signal that extra assistance is needed. Let’s do our part and do it swiftly and efficiently to make sure student achievement doesn’t suffer.”

 

  • “Just as science can free the innocent, it can also identify the guilty.”

 

  • "Our Presidential Award nominees set a great example, not only for educators in Massachusetts, but for the nation. Distinguished math and science teachers like these are the critical components of a public education system that will prepare us for the next century, and they deserve to be recognized for their hard work, creativity and dedication.”

 

  • “Given the demands of today’s global economy, it is more important than ever before that our students leave our schools with a solid education in both math and science. We are lucky to have such skilled educators in our classrooms.”
