Yes, this is an issue—for example in my third level course only two students have had all three courses to complete the pathway. The others may have had class one or two, both not both. This is disheartening especially when you expect to be able to teach students that are really interested in your program. It is also disturbing that the state is putting such an emphasis on pathway completers and earning industry credentials. How can that ever happen when kids are in classes they don’t want to be in? I try to remedy this issue by drawing them in to the field with interesting projects, etc. One project in particular is the Serial Killer Project. All students seem to enjoy this one—perhaps because it sparks their interest, but they usually finish with the desire to learn more. The same can be done in all my other classes with forensics it is usually crime scenes and in the other classes they love policing tactics. At this time, hands-on activities is the best way for me to get my students interested whether they want to be in the class or not. In addition, I tell all students they can all get something out of Public Safety including how to be a more productive, more aware citizen.
