The Madison School board is looking to install STEM courses at the kindergarten level right on through high school. STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, brought up some questions by parents and teachers at Wednesday night’s meeting, according to RichlandSource.com.
The concerns were that the STEM courses are mandatory and could replace other electives. Other area schools have STEM courses as an option, but this would cost the Madison School district more money in teachers and classrooms. At the moment, Madison schools have 2 STEM classes at the junior high level.
