Repeal "Access to Science in Schools"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal Resolution: GA#48 Proposed by: Auralia


Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #48: Access to Science in Schools (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Educational) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: Affirming the purpose of GAR #48, "Access to Science in Schools", namely to ensure that all students have access to a quality education in the sciences,

Noting that the target resolution requires that all schools that receive government aid include peer-reviewed science in their curricula,

Remarking that the term "school" includes institutions of higher learning,

Recognizing that many institutions of higher learning do not include peer-reviewed science in their curricula as it is irrelevant to the material being taught, such as:

  1. graduate schools teaching law and business,

  2. vocational schools teaching the vast majority of trades, such as locksmithing, piano tuning or tailoring, and

  3. arts schools teaching the visual or performing arts,

Emphasizing that in many nations, such institutions are attended exclusively by students who have already received substantial instruction in the sciences as part of their primary and secondary education, but who have ultimately chosen to specialize in another area,

Acknowledging that such institutions receive government funding in certain nations, placing them under the purview of the target resolution,

Concluding that the target resolution's requirements are completely impractical and inappropriate for such institutions,

Recommending that any replacement resolution simply mandate that all member nations provide students with a quality science education rather than micromanaging the affairs of particular schools,

The General Assembly,

Repeals GAR #48, "Access to Science in Schools".

Against. Unnecessary, since the resolution recognizes exceptions like for private schools, which the types of schools listed above usually are. Other than this one, no sufficient cause.

I vote for. There's no reason that a science education mandate be so wide-sweeping. Even so, by the time you get to such specialized education as graduate school you should already have a basic grounding in science as is necessary.

I for one feel the delegate should abscond, with a handsome male model if possible.

I abstain... though it shocks me some of the stuff that actually makes it way through the WA...

Repeal "Access to Science in Schools" was passed 6,046 votes to 4,816. The Delegate voted against, even though absconding with a handsome model sounded fun. :P
