“Science Education Is Under Legislative Attack”

Scientific American: “Science Education Is Under Legislative Attack”

(Excerpts)

  • In 2019, legislators scattered across the country introduced more than a dozen bills that threaten the integrity of science education.
  • The bills shared a common goal: undermining the teaching of evolution or climate change.
  • Sometimes their language is cloaked in vague high-sounding language about objectivity and balance, requiring a careful analysis of the motives of the sponsors and supporters.
  • But the purpose is always the same: to frustrate the purpose of public science education.
