Stealthy Sabotage of Science in Schools

Posted on Updated on

textbook
A sin to encourage kids to learn about sustainability and political activism?

The page from this textbook has caused outrage among some folks and is being used as an example of why S.B. 1210/H.B.989 must pass the Florida legislature this year.  It passed through the Education Committee on a 16-2 vote without debate and public comment.    The promoters of the bill “want some form of creationism taught alongside evolution. They want references to human-caused climate change erased”, an idea which many lawmakers have deemed harmless and benign. Credo has a petition to sign, but you should also call your lawmakers and tell them “Hell No!” on these bills.  Florida Citizen’s for Science has information and talking points to help in your calls.  Here’s a link to where your representatives can be reached: http://myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Representatives/myrepresentative.aspx
