Newton in the Big Apple: Access to High School Physics in New York City
Kelly, Angela M.; Sheppard, Keith
Physics Teacher, v46 n5 p280-283 May 2008
Despite reports to the contrary, the availability of physics as a course for high school students is not equitably distributed throughout the United States. While some schools provide physics for all who wish to take it, a more common scenario is limited availability, often open only to the few students who have completed the necessary prerequisite courses. This is particularly true in urban districts where physics is not universally available in secondary school.
