Big trouble about physics teaching in Italy.
Four years ago the ministry of education introduced an examination on physics (writing session) in the scientific high school but lots of maths teachers (teaching physics!) oppose the initiative.
Three years later the physics exam can’t be given mainly because of the strong opposition of teachers. The main motivation they put forward still remain that students have not the necessary skills to successfully face the physics exam.
Now it seems that ministry want to change the features of the final exam in order to by-pass the problem. That´s the right way to tackle with the critical point!
