The Christians are at it again in South Dakota. This time they lost. A science bill in the states senate education committee was recently defeated. The bill would have allowed teachers to essentially teach anything they want as science as long as they use certain language.
There are three other bills in state legislatures that would allow science denial in the class rooms. Indiana senate resolution 17, Oklahoma senate bill 393, Texas house bill 1485. At least 60 "academic freedom" bills- which permit teachers to paint established science as controversial. Those bills have been filed all over the country. Louisiana passed one in 2008. Tennessee did the same in 2012
Educational groups all over the country are fighting back. ....National Science Teachers Association, National Association Of Biology Teachers, National Association of Geoscience Teachers, National Center for science Education, and American Institute of Biological Sciences....... If you have any capacity for doing so, please get behind any or all of these organizations and push.
