It's another day at school for these Alexander High School freshman. But this year, these students are offered a class that has not been offered before, Principles of Oil and Gas Production System. David Esquivel has family who has made a career in the oil rigs, and he is excited about the new opportunity he now has. "We learn about petroleum expiration, how the oil comes off. We learn a little bit about fracking and the drilling. We talked a little about that." There are 16 students in this class, and 14 more in another at Alexander High School. Each student has three books and they stress safety is the most important thing." "The goggles you need to wear, the hard hat, uniform. If you get oil on yourself you have to wash it off right away." This program is a four-year course, and a new portion of instruction will be offered every year for the students. During their senior year, the students can also, get college credit. The oilfields are known for their big salaries, something that also entices the students. "Well the money." This program is offered at every UISD high school.
