David Mech for Palm Beach County School Board (District 3)

INNOVATION


As someone who believes that science and technology are the future of education, I would support offering computer language/programming courses (e.g., Java, C++, etc.) that students could take as their "foreign language" requirement.

I would also support making statistics a required course, as so much in life revolves around probability and statistics.  We are doing our students a disservice by not educating them in this area.

Lastly, a mature science of the mind is critical to understanding human behavior and how the world works.  Although most district high schools offer an introductory course in psychology, I would support offering a course in evolutionary psychology to build upon that framework.
