This item from Robert Frost Middle School reminded me of Dickens character, Oliver Twist, with the students asking:
Please sir, I'd like some more. I am hungry for science education, and I just can't get what I need to succeed here.
MoCo's Promethean Procurement has kept many a Parents Coalition blogger busy writing about the proliferation of these funky techno-toys in schools throughout the county. Honestly, by now we thought that these boards were all over MoCo schools.
Imagine my surprise when I found the following on Frost's PTSA webpage.
I know that math teachers and social studies teachers have Promethean boards at Frost - so why were the science teachers left out? Can't the teachers share?
More important - I wonder what the folks who are promoting "Science City" on the Belward Property will think when they find out labs in MCPS middle schools aren't state of the art. Shush, don't let them know that the high school labs at Wootton and Churchill are lacking in basics too - maybe they will rethink their plan for locating to a county that doesn't support K-12 science education.
