Many high schools require a second year of math for students preparing for college.

One American student out of require one year of "general sci- science studies in the fourth ence" for.graduation. This usually is taught in the ninth grade and includes a smattering of all the natural sciences from-astronomy to zoology.

The Soviet student takes four years of chemistry, starting in the seventh grade, and one year of astronomy, in the 10th grade. Some U S. high schools offer four years of foreign .language instruction and require at least two years for a student taking a college preparatory cour.se. But the majority do not require any foreign language study, and many do not even offer it. Russian students ge; five years of foreign language instruction. About 40 per cent, study English. Soviet children get separate courses in history and geography each year from the fourth grade on. A Russian student has no choice whatever in the subjects he studies.
