I am a school superintendent. I have been in education since 1973. As a science teacher for 28 years I often lamented the need for education to become more integrated and now I am seeing more signs of this occurring in public schools. My current school is a very strong STEM school with integration of all the different curriculums as a core feature. When Dr. Chen asked, "Do your students run faster to get in the school then to get out of school... I knew he was describing my school district..." It is my hope that all schools in my state and in our country can move toward this model.
