The paper has been highly cited over the years but is now quite old ('03) do you think the findings are still relevant? #SciteachJC

"single most important to improve science education would be recruitment & retention of able, bright enthusiastic teachers" #SciTeachJC

I found myself agreeing with a lot of the paper as I read it, have things changed at all? #SciteachJC
@Bio_Joe
Joe Wright

my son's experience says it is very relevant - he finds the curriculum dull & repetitive & his teachers uninspiring #SciTeachJC

Hi #SciTeachJC, I'm a chemistry teacher at secondary level and did a MA in Science Education at King's a few years ago.

@ I actually think that the situation has changed quite a bit since the data in the paper were published. #SciteachJC

@ Suspect line about students only being able to name dead scientists might now be changed to "...and Brian Cox" #SciTeachJC 😉

@ what do you think has changed most? #SciteachJC

@ I TOTALLY agree with you from my experience as an internal AST, this is the issue my students bring up #SciteachJC
@DrRacheal
Dr Racheal

son also says labs are uninspiring but that is often down to what the teachers choose but teacher is biggest impact for him #SciTeachJC

@ That's a great quote, where is it from? Any research I could refer to for a policy doc I'm putting together? #SciTeachJC

@ they know Jim Al-Khalili too which is more than can be said for our SLT (post 16 FE) #SciTeachJC

@ more recent figures show numbers studying A level sciences increased. Still work to do but not such doom as in paper.#SciteachJC

@ When you say labs do you mean decor or practical activities? #SciteachJC
@DrRacheal
Dr Racheal

@ Thanks--sorry for jumping into the middle of #SciTeachJC! Interested from a computer science perspective, especially for ITT/CPD.
@DrTomCrick
Dr Tom Crick

@ yes number have increased but there are still students who are turned off science at a young age #SciteachJC

@ @ We have such a fertile field to seed by explaining the reality of science education.#SciTeachJC
@jimbobthomas

#SciteachJC attitudes don't seem have changed significantly since the paper was written. Recent interview with some 13 year olds says not.

@ no I didn't; I looked at data up to 2008 in my MA dissertation though. #SciTeachJC

@ he says they do few practicals & the work they do is dictated to them and lab sheets (he is doing triple sci btw) #SciTeachJC
