Our Opinion: 3 schools tops in biotechnology | www.tucsoncitizen.com �: "Three Tucson high schools are on the biotechnology cutting edge - something that will pay dividends for students.
Palo Verde, Pueblo and Tucson high magnet schools - all in the Tucson Unified School District - were recognized for their biotechnology programs.
The three schools were among nine in Arizona featured in 'Building the Bioscience Pipeline,' a report by the Flinn Foundation and the Salt River Project.
The report found that few Arizona schools address the need for qualified laboratory scientists. It also determined that a 'generation of biology students lack employable laboratory skills.'
It is good to know that three local schools are giving students a leg up in a field that will be rapidly growing and critically important locally, regionally and nationally."
