So is this a problem, and if so what do you propose as a solution?

Yes, I believe it is. And I find the false equivalency argument rediculous.

The solution starts with outreach and encouragement. I've done chemistry experiments for Cub Scout troops, talked at schools, and at one point donated a significant amount of equipment to a charter school (but that was because my company folded). I've mostly stayed within my community for those things (other than the donation), which is mostly white, and could certainly expand that circle. Widespread corporate outreach would be even more effective.

Aren’t all students in public schools learning the same curriculum?

Curriculum, generally yes. Education & experience, no.
