The Flight from Physics Education: Searching for Reasons by Comparisons across the Curriculum
Monk, Martin
Physics Education, v43 n2 p185-188 Mar 2008
Cross-curriculum comparisons help open up new perspectives on old issues. The flight from physics by students is one such issue. Here a comparison is made with music education and language education. Where these comparisons provide useful insights they can also warn against knee-jerk panaceas. It is suggested we need to understand how and why young people make their career decisions before we take further action.
