WHY WE NEED TO STUDY STS?
Since the birth of modern education in the Philippines, it focuses largely on science and technology. It is evident by integration of science subjects in its entire curriculum. There is a large distribution of science high schools all over the country that promotes science, forging competition for aspiring students to undergo rigorous science and mathematics training based on specialized curricula.
- Simply mastering science and technology would be inadequate if we are to, say, socialize with people or ruminate on our inner self.
- As students are promised that the field would later land those high-paying jobs and a lucrative career after graduation.
- A true eudaimon recognizes that flourishing requires one to excel in various dimensions, such as linguistic, kinetic, artistic, and socio-civic.
