Who's Getting It Right and Who's Getting It Wrong in the Debate About Science Literacy?

Logo for Who's Getting It Right and Who's Getting It Wrong in the Debate About Science Literacy?
This brings to light an interesting debate between those who believe that a lack of scientific literacy is the reason why scientific endeavors are often met with disapproval and misunderstanding and those who believe that a lack of public involvement and engagement in scientific issues and the use of resulting technology is the cause.
