Maybe true now, in mIssouri, but I think most of the people teaching 
high school science DON'T have masters.  Here in Texas, I can't think of 
any who do.  Back in Massachusetts, none of my high school teachers did 
and in Vermont where my children attend a private academy because the 
public high school is so abysmal, only 1 of the science teachers has a 
masters degree, and it's not in science.  What do you base this on?
