The appliance of common sense
I AM currently studying for my leaving certificate. I am studying the three science subjects.
I read that the ASTI is complaining about the lack of resources available to teach science subjects, citing a lack of basic IT equipment in schools and a lack of government funds to make field trips (Irish Independent, April 1).
As a result, one-in-seven schools have dropped a science subject and a further one-in-five will be forced to do so before the end of the year.
