There are two experiences of science:
The experience of scientists is to raise questions and try to find an experiment that can distinguish the results.
The experience of students, especially HS students, is to sit in a room and be told how everything works.
All too often, people with a social agenda duplicate HS science. They tell us all what will happen.
A lot right-wing economics goes that way: "Tax cuts lead to rapid economic growth." Well, it didn't after the first Reagan tax cuts, the second Reagan tax cuts, or the Bush tax cuts. That, however, is simply a coincidence. For each example, the growth would have been even lower if the tax cuts hadn't happened. How do we know? Well economic science tells us so.
The people promoting new educational ideas, though, are not solely on the right, and they are no better. There is a huge pool of children born every year. There are several new educational proposals every year. When have you seen a trial of one of those proposals made with a large sample of students and a large control sample? I never have.
