“There is a lot of reason to believe that students are not getting the instruction in science, social studies, the arts, and world languages that they need,” King said. “I count myself among those who worry that the balance has shifted too much away from subjects outside of math and English that can be the spark to a child’s interest and excitement, are actually essential to success in reading and are critical to a child’s future.”

Focusing on the social studies curriculum, it will help even the playing field when it comes to the application process for colleges. Students will be more rounded in college too because they have been exposed to the variety of subjects.
