In the local paper today, there was an article about a STEM academy being opened up in Northern Idaho. STEM, for those who don't know, stands for Science, Technology, Electronics and Mathematics. In short, it's a school designed to teach the hard sciences that aren't being taught in the Publik Skool Sistim. And it's a charter school, so it doesn't fall under the school administration in this area. Much to the STEM Academy's benefit.
I have to wonder; just what would my life have looked like if I had been given the chance to go to a STEM academy instead of being tortured with four years of hell courtesy of the government-run schools?
