As another parent of two children who have bad high school biology (both had the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study Blue Version course), I would like to comment on Branson's letter (28 Oct.). My children have both come away, instilled with enthusiasm for the study of biology, with the feeling that it's a science, that it's understandable, and that it bas principles. I feel that the BSCS Blue Version high school course is a great advance over its predecessors, precisely because it is so intellectually interesting and stimulating. It teaches the excitement of modern biology. It cannot, of course, teach all of the facts. No course can. The most that a high school biology course can do is to awaken the student's interest, and thence to help him to want to learn for himself other related biological matters.
