how much advanced math & science are needed?
A study recently came out indicating that majority of parents feel that they students do not need to study advanced science such as chemistry and physics. The majority of the parents felt that physical science and biology are the only essential science classes needed in schools and forget about chemistry and physics. I might be biased but I feel that students going to college need to have a year of chemistry and a year of physics, particularly if the student wants to study a field that has science embedded in it. If the student takes only the required science classes to graduate from high school then eventually goes on to study science in college, they would need to start at the lowest level. This was ultimately cost the parents money in terms of college tuition. Also, it would take the student longer to graduate from college.
