elementary STEM school - heavy on the science, technology, engineering and math. (Still having to hit the standards for language arts and social studies, etc.) I'm not sure what I think about this. We recently opened a STEM high school here after all the kids graduated. I think Eldest and GB would have applied to attend it.
Another article, can't find the link at the moment, revealed that companies are aggressively courting science and engineering students at colleges in the state. Microsoft called GB as a sophomore. I can see, especially in this climate, the appeal of getting your child in on the ground floor.
On the other hand...
What do you all think? Educators? Parents? Is there going to be anyone left to uphold the written and visual arts? (Degree in Communications here who has made a meager living with the written word.)
