  • Why we should have more science education

    I think we should have more science education because it will help kids get a better education. The job list gets even longer with the extra education. Also for kids they like the field trips or lessons with because they like to do experiments. So those are some reasons why I think kids should have a better science education.

  • We need new science education

    We need to have an educational system based far more on science and technology to get people ready for the coming changes in our economy and our ways of life that will inevitably happen due to changes in technology. It's time we get prepared for this impending reality right now.

  • A new science education guideline, with sweeping changes in both its contents and teaching method, should be adopted.

    Initially, about the contents, It is obvious that nowadays there is a wide range of new scientific phenomenon which have, both positively and negatively, affected our world such as climate change, greenhouse effect or sources of renewable energy. If the guideline is updated to include such new scientific issues, not only people will be protected from charlatans that exploit their ignorance, but the rate of highschool graduates who choose scientific and techological majors also will probably increase. This will bring benefits to the economic growth of a nation in future because a highly-skilled workforce will help utilise resources more efficiently, boosting the national output.

    As regards the teaching method, a case-study method should be applied. In traditional classes such as biology or chemistry, students only study one subject from a single field. Besides, they only learn ideas as many as possible and then recite all of them in papers to pass examinations. This ways of teaching science can not make students understand how an idea is developed and examined, or how to form a strong scientific evidence and to realise a weak one. In contrast, a case-study method helps students develop such skills because they can analyse a subject in many different aspects. For example, human body can be studied in terms of biology, physics or emotion. In this case, students will discover various knowlegde relating to only one subject mentioned.

  • This should be happening on a regular basis.

    Science is not like English or maths which stays stable for many decades. Scientists are constantly making new discoveries and learning new things, the only way to update the knowledge of the human race is to continue to update the education system to include the new discoveries and the most modern ways of thinking.

  • There is room for improvement.

    "Science literacy is a vaccine against the charlatans of the world that would exploit your ignorance." - Neil deGrasse Tyson

    There are few aspects of education which are more important to the growth of a knowledgeable child than science, and there needs to be stricter guidelines regarding how it is taught. Gone should be the teacher whose idea of teaching science is to tell kids to read, take notes, and pass a test. Science is about experimentation and verification of results, not rote memorization. Steps must also be taken to ensure that religious fundamentalists can never poison the well of science with their myths and fantasies. The science classroom is not the place for fairy tales and a proactive approach should be taken to guard against it.

  • No, the current ones serve us well.

    I can think of no reason why we need new science education guidelines. Science is science, and guidelines should exist generally, with each teacher being allowed to present science in his or her own way. The current guidelines have served us well, so I see no need to change them or add to them.
