If you were the mister of education or whatever, how would you structure high school physics? Would you make it more math heavy, would you put an emphasis on critical thinking and understanding or would you increase rote-learning or decrease it? Would you make it so that it prepares students for undergrad physics? But that may not be suitable for students who have an interest in physics but not in doing physics at uni. What else would you do? I spoke to my physics teacher about this and he was like "If we make high school physics difficult and remove rote-learning, students would be scared away and not do it". Do you think this is an excuse to make high school physics 'The History of Physics'?
