Science for All.
Fensham, Peter J.
Educational Leadership, v44 n4 p18-23 Dec-Jan 1986-87
Science education should be effective as "Science for All" but the science curriculums introduced in the 1960s and 1970s were inadequate and only served a science "elite" while teaching the majority of students that science was not for them. Science must be reexamined and curriculum developers should emphasize exciting examples and everyday applications in science. (MD)
