Science is an important part of education and teaches students a very large variety of useful information. With that said, that does not mean it is the most important. Math and Read/Writing skills are both equally important, especially since they are used in our everyday life. At school, work, going out to eat it is constantly being used.
It is more important that we take the time to teach others the intangibles of life. How to treat yourself and others. Science is not going any where and we will never know everything there is about the cosmos or even the very earth we live on. We can control how we treat each other and the advancement of human kind by teaching everyone what it means to care.
