More on FPF from the Tallahassee Democrat: Raa Middle School’s Mrs. Ponti featured (with video)

The Democrat published a feature piece on Future Physicists of Florida yesterday, and posted video of Lisa Ponti’s class on its web site.  The title?  “Teachers, professors push for high-level science education.”  You betcha!

Leadership is critical at every school, and it’s worth noting that Raa’s Principal, former State Board of Education member Donna Callaway, has done a great job maintaining an environment where kids can learn, and even learn science (yes, science!).

Raa is a heterogeneous school that could easily fall into large-scale dysfunction.  The teachers, leadership and staff all deserve credit for making it a great place to learn.

Update (Thursday morning):  And now see the Democrat’s editorial on STEM education and FPF in this morning’s paper.
