Tech Press Gets Wind of Berkeley High Lab Ban



Wired editor Chris Anderson read the East Bay Express' piece on the Berkeley High proposal to end science labs, even for AP classes, and redirect the funds toward remedial education. So he did what any self-respecting tech magazine editor would do: he tweeted it. And TechDirt promptly picked up the piece. "It seems like there must be more to this story than what's being reported," writes blogger Mike Masnick. "The concept of cutting science labs because more white students take them just seems too preposterous to make sense." Will this thing go viral? And will the school board finally step back from the brink?
