The market requires workers demonstrate superiority to his fellow man. Elitism becomes the saving grace for a prospective employee.

I wish I was still in the classroom sometimes, making the difference in chem/physics/math.
But I still tutor and coach and my 'hidden agenda', quite conservative with the kids, is always geared to what you mention.
It's like a great HS wrestler--they're all that good in college--same with major level courses in Chemistry--HS As are a dime a dozen.
Our CCs in IL now have PhDs in most majors--it's the only way 4-year schools would take the whole AA degree.
HS teachers must have a Masters in Chemistry, not just a Masters in Ed in Chem, to teach Chem for a major level course.
Otherwise, they can still teach Chem for gen ed.
Also, we have a huge program where HS courses count as DUAL CREDIT with the CC .
Chemists Have Solutions .
