Even if you believe something to be true, you might not follow that belief. This is exactly the case based on the results from a recent survey from 3M called theState of Science Index. In its fifth year, the survey examines the public image of science globally. One of the themes of this year’s survey was the perception of vocational skills.

But a majority, 71%, also said they would not pursue this employment route.
