Laboratories, Resources and Budgets: Provision for science in secondary schools
04 April 2004
Despite the UK's excellent record in international comparisons in school science, the RSC was concerned that a lack of good laboratory facilities and sufficient modern equipment in schools may be discouraging young people from pursuing the study of science and may also discourage graduates from taking up a career in teaching.
The RSC asked CLEAPSS to obtain base line data on the standards of science laboratories and resources and the levels of budgets, to help it make a case for improvement, if necessary, and to estimate the costs of effecting significant improvements.
