Glenda Said:

How can we motivate high school students to become more interested in science and pursue careers in science?

We Answered:

We need to create an environment where excellence is rewarded. With the current environment of "teaching to the test" and pretending that everyone is cut out for a college prep education, the truly talented and intelligent are being buried in boring repetition and mediocrity. Unlike in Lake Wobegon, not all kids are better than average.

We need to recognize and push those that are tops in intelligence, and provide them with an educational challenge that they can rise to, not just recitation of facts and figures that will allow them to score high on standardized testing.

In my high school, there were three student "tracks". Vocational, business, and college prep, which made a lot of sense. But even then, the college prep kids made do with a single obsolete TRS-80 in one of the Calculus classes, while the Biz-Ed kids had dozens of new IBM PC's. And think of all the resources put into sports.

We should break up public schools into units focused on specific tracks like my old high school's model, and then adequately fund all units. There's nothing wrong with studying to become a plumber or electrician- a master level plumber will earn more of an income than most scientists or engineers.

And we'd put kids with an intellectual bent into an environment with similar kids where they weren't treated as "nerds", or bored to tears with learning materials geared to the lowest common denominator. Some may say that it would be elitist to do so, but why is it acceptable to create a school elite based on athletic ability, but not for academic or intellectual ability? If we can accept that the ability to throw a football can be a rare genetic gift deserving special treatment, why not likewise for the ability to understand higher level math?
