How do you feel your district performs with preparing students for careers in engineering? I do not feel that I was very prepared, coming from a private high school in New York. I was completely outperformed in some of my college engineering classes by students coming from more affluent suburban towns, or from specialized high schools focused on math and science in the city. Many of those who struggled like I did eventually transferred to other less demanding schools within the university or dropped out altogether. I perservered and eventually graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
How do you encourage students to pursue the math and sciences and prepare them for a career in engineering?
