The Crisis in Science Education: Problems and Recommendations: A Summary of the Iowa Academy of Science Symposium at Luther College, Decorah, Iowa, April 22, 1983
There is a recognized state and national crisis in securing and maintaining "qualified" science teachers. To date the majority of effort has been expended toward identifying and redefining the problems with few attempts made to resolve them. The purpose of this symposium was to spend minimal time seeking to inform participants of the problems and then to present some recommendations for resolving them. Each of the presenters was uniquely to address this, to date, intractable problem.
