MISSOURI MOVES AGAINST EVOLUTION!!!
Missouri's GOP Dominated NO-Veto majority seemingly believes that fighting science is more important than confronting the stagnant economy.
Antievolution legislation in Missouri
The money line and a bit of new wordplay to start legislating the classroom by reactionary politicos.
"The bill would, if enacted, call on state and local education administrators to "endeavor to create an environment within public elementary and secondary schools that encourages students to explore scientific questions, learn about scientific evidence, develop critical thinking skills, and respond appropriately and respectfully to differences of opinion about controversial issues, including biological and chemical evolution" and to "endeavor to assist teachers to find more effective ways to present the science curriculum where it addresses scientific controversies." "Toward this end," the bill continues, "teachers shall be permitted to help students understand, analyze, critique, and review in an objective manner the scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses of the theory of biological and hypotheses of chemical evolution.""
On the bright side . . . As Missouri test scores and eduction ranking continues to slide . . . It's doubtful students in the Show-Me state will remember anything from a highly politicized lesson plan designed by the GOP.
