Answer:

Communication and availability of information makes the world a better place. New ways of communicating with people near and far are created by people who use math and science.

Explanation:

Like all human endeavors, communication and information will be both good and bad. But with more ways to explore what people say and more resources to investigate the information provided, a person or a society has a better chance of exposing the negative and finding the positive.

Answer:

I would require every high school student to take 3 years of math and 3 years of science in order to graduate.

Explanation:

The math courses would include calculus and the science courses would include chemistry and physics.

That would hopefully create an American populace that wouldn't be so ignorant of such important things, and that would certainly make the world a better place.
