Academic organizations related to science education have issued a statement opposing the abolition of general science subjects and the change to integrated science as subjects starting from the 2028 College Scholastic Ability Test.
The Federation of Academic Societies Related to Science Education (hereinafter referred to as the Federation of Academic Societies) issued a statement on the 25th saying, “In order to secure and maintain national competitiveness, science must be based on a deep understanding of physics, chemistry, life science, and earth science, which are the foundations of science and technology. He raised his voice, saying, “We need talented people with knowledge,” and “It is difficult to judge college academic ability based on integrated science studies at the middle school level, and it is also difficult to provide sufficient information for student selection.”
The academic association was formed by seven organizations: the Korean Society for Science Education, the Korean Society for Field Science Education, the Korean Society for Biological Education, the Korean Society for Earth Science Education, the Society for Energy and Climate Change Education, the International Society for the Gifted in Science, and the Korea Society for Elementary Science Education.
The Federation of Academic온라인카지노 Organizations argued that setting only integrated science as a subject for the CSAT would lead to a decrease in the competitiveness of science and engineering students. They said, “We will make students aware that integrated science-level studies are sufficient for college academic ability.” They added, “Especially in the entrance exam-oriented high school education climate, if integrated science is the only subject to be taken, students will be able to take courses suitable for their career after completing integrated science.” “Rather than choosing, there is a high possibility that you will choose subjects that are easy to get good grades for,” he said.
He went on to point out, “Even if schools offer a variety of elective courses, it is expected that integrated science-level course content will be covered repeatedly for the purpose of entrance exams, and education at an appropriate level for career paths will not be provided.”
They were concerned that the introduction of the integrated science CSAT assessment would reduce the opportunities for students to select various fields of science. He pointed out that with the deletion of elective subjects, it would be difficult to achieve in-depth science learning. The Federation of Academic Organizations said, “As students no longer choose science subjects in a specific field, it will become difficult to find direction on what career path to pursue.”
They also opposed the reform of the internal credit evaluation system from the existing 9-grade system to a 5-grade system and the simultaneous use of relative evaluation rankings. The Federation of Academic Organizations said, “The use of relative evaluation rankings will actually undermine fairness by aggravating the advantages and disadvantages of subject selection,” and added, “We are concerned about another form of fairness damage caused by the advantages and disadvantages of subject selection.”
