Michael Chertoff on Education

Director of Homeland Security


Canít afford to lose the competitive advantage of science

We have programs in terms of science and technology that deal with centers of excellence. We may also have programs that would try to encourage people to get into areas of research and study that have an application to the Homeland Security issues. Obviously, the Department of Education is a separate department, but I could not agree more that the long-term advantage we have in this war is the advantage of our technology and our science. We canít afford to lose that competitive advantage.
