STEM — Why doesn't the "E" stand for "Evolution"? 

Here are the results from Gallup's latest survey of US ignorance. Forty-six of us believe that god created humans as is; 32% will buy a time-based process (evolution) but with the gudenance of god; only 15% of us believe that natural selection is the sole driver of the evolution of things living to their current states. 

 

As Scarecrow points out at Firedoglake, perhaps the percentages on this poll give us a better assessment of the US education system than students' math scores in their Race to the Top.

And based on these scores (not broken down by age), there's no race, we're not nearing the top. We are complicit in raising a generation of the misinformed.
