I'd be curious to know why you feel its so important for every kid to take calculus in high school. It seems to me that a kid who comes to his/her first calculus course in college with a strong algebra background is in a lot better shape than one who struggled through a year of high school calculus because of weak algebra skills and understanding.

I don't feel it's important for everyone to take calculus in high school. Sorry if you read my comments that way. What I wanted to say was, I'd like to find a way for those students who are willing and able to take calculus, to also take the FST class. I agree with your second sentence.
