Governor Jerry Brown's Budget Proposal Reduces High School Science Requirement

Posted on February 6, 2012 at 11:28am 0 Comments

In Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2012–13 budget, he is proposing that school districts have the flexibility to require only one high school science class instead of the two currently mandated by state law. Currently California State law requires that high school students take one course in biological science and one in physical science.  While every high school must provide its students access to the courses required for UC and CSU admission, which include two laboratory sciences in two different…

Thanks Jerry. Because I'm always asking her science questions, Anne Ybarra suggested that I join. I hear good things about your career from Anne.

It is always an adventure. Thank you for letting me be apart of each one. Science is in such a need for literacy to be the cornerstone for educators and students alike.
This is irregardless of age, grade or gender. Once a person is literate in the language of discovery and the adventures, what doors could be opened. Imagine the levels of achievement that are possible when learning is fun. The rigor becomes the adventure as new worlds are discovered. Learning becomes a life long pursuit.
