Poll: More Science For Easton High School?

Should Easton require students to take more than four years of high school science?

When class of 2012 graduates this week, some of its students will have taken three years of science, while others will have four.

That's because three years is all that's required by the school (the fourth year is an elective course). But now some school board members are wondering whether four years should be the standard as the district looks for ways to test scores.

Tell us what you think: Should students be required to take four years of science? What if that meant increasing staff? Take our poll, and tell us in the comments.

lets make sure they can read and do math the ones interested in science will select it thats why the state should standardize all schools ciriculum to many do good opinions with no commn sense or what the real needs are in the real world if the united states would have been built on these boohoo liberals we would be wearing feathers and living in teepees

I got into Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Amherst, and Williams from Easton High. Not because I was particularly brillant. I was just competent in science and math, but I was expert in....LATIN! Were Latin still encouraged, along with other languages, these kids might get scholarships...ah, fuggedit...Uh, do any of youse people know what the subjunctive is and how to use it? Forsitan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit!

Latin is okay and studying a foreign language has a benefit often overlooked--it helps students to better understand their native language. As for my native language and the subjunctive, long live the King's English.

Boo hoo who now? America is built on many things but it is not built on looking backward in order to progress. Liberals see an expanse of water and can envision a bridge over it. And they saw an expanse of land we now know as America where they envisioned a country governed by the people living in that expanse.
