20 Who Takes Which Science? If you attend school in the Bronx your chances of taking Regents Physics are 1 in 9 (Chemistry 1 in 4) If you attend school in the Bronx (not BHS of Science) your chances of taking Regents Physics are 1 in 20 (Chem 1 in 10) If you attend school in the Bronx (not BHS of Science) your chances of passing Regents Physics are 1 in 40 (Chem 1 in 20) If you attend school in the Bronx (not BHS of Science) your chances of passing Regents Physics with mastery are 1 in 200 (Chem 1 in 200)

26 Solutions – New York State 1.Change NYS graduation requirements –Physical Setting – Unintended consequence of testing culture – Boosting enrollment in physics and chemistry

27 Solutions – New York State 2.Explore units of analysis – Richer disaggregate data – Opportunity to learn in different contexts – Who is teaching what? In middle school? – How many teachers do we need in what certification areas?

28 Solutions – Administration 3.Educate administrators – Who controls access – Superintendents guidance counselors

29 Solutions – Higher Education 4.Role of research university – Offering advanced science, teaching labs – New Science Education Ph.D. – influence policy – Research on SES outliers
