Here is a link to a blog by Education Week about Education Secretary Arne Duncan seeing the need for more science in the curriculum because with No Child Left Behind, science is being "pushed" out of the curriculum. I would use the word squeezed out! This has happened in my school. A link to the article is below.
Duncan said "I worry tremendously about the loss of science and engineering," Duncan said at one point. The main question, he added is: "How do we create the incentives so that students have a well-rounded curriculum?...We're thinking these things though."
