Create the best mathematics and science educational experiences for youth

In the almost 15 years since I finished high school I notice major changes in how children are educated. I feel like I'm not old enough to say that when I was small things were different, but I say that on a regular basis. When I was a child, parents and educators seemed to work together to provide a quality education for children. There are learning experiences both at home and at school. I have some memories of conduct science experiments at home and at school as early as primary school. However, I am aware that children not today have the same opportunities I had during my studies of K - 12.

All students is not equality of the chances of having a large science educational experience. I have been spending time in schools and am aware that children are not engaged in enough hands on science or science that is relevant for them to make them interested in science. A conversation with a 5th grader and he talked about what he learned in science class that day here. What they have learned bored to death, they talked about a scientist who died and technology which is obsolete. I know that the history of science is an important part of science, but children should learn something that is relevant and current, and scientists who are alive today. But something that I appreciate at least this student's science learning. I am always curious how State math and science standards are selected. Curriculum team brings together a variety of mathematics and sciences and professional educators? They choose based material which provide students with a solid base and also to engage with them subjects? Whether they choose a curriculum that school districts will be able to be implemented, including districts and schools with limited resources? Do they consider the curriculum is academically prepare for postsecondary education and pursue careers in these subjects? I think a strong program should include these elements in order to ensure the academic success of our children in math and science.

In addition, most State curriculum at the heart of the subjects are arts of language, mathematics, social studies and science. However the priority of time teaching in our schools, especially at the elementary school is not always placed emphasis on equal preparation in all areas. There are studies that show that of elementary students do you always an adequate amount of science in their curriculum. There are various reasons for this. the main reason is that not enough resources is education, because science is rarely about standardized testing which has become an essential part of education. Another reason is not all primary teachers feel sufficiently comfortable teach their students the science. With school primary is the Foundation for learning in all areas, if there is no sound basis in science, how children aim when they go to school of medium and high. This does not create an environment for our children to Excel in science, let alone to pursue a career in these areas.

So that we can provide the best educational experience for our young people, we must take the educational system that is responsible for ensuring that all domains have times of equal education. We shouldn't give more subjects more time teaching simply because our students will be tested on these topics. The best way we can hold accountable them is to build a relationship with education at all levels; different schools, school district and State Education Department. We want to ensure that our children are academically prepared to enter the market of the future work to be an educated workforce.
