(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A legal dispute between two creationist organizations is settled,
while the lawsuit against the University of California system is

for Science's cartoon contest!

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The potential consequences of the Texas state board of education's decision
to adopt a set of flawed state science standards are in the news, as are
disquieting poll results from Louisiana. And the head of the White House
Office of Science and Technology described the new Texas standards as "a
step backward."

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Eugenie C. Scott will be on Science Friday today to discuss the fight over
evolution in Texas's state science standards. Plus two chances to

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Plenty of news in Texas again: the Texas state board of education voted to
adopt a flawed set of state science standards, and Chris Comer's suit
against the Texas Education Agency was dismissed. In Florida, the Florida
Academy of Sciences denounced the antievolution bill still in the state
senate. A few seats remain aboard NCSE's next excursion to the Grand
Canyon. And the Evolution Education Update is going to be transferred to
Google Groups in the near future.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A new antievolution bill in Texas, and plenty of further news from the Lone

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2009/03/13

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Texas is in the headlines again, with a new bill that appears to be
intended to exempt the Institute for Creation Research's graduate school
from state regulation as well as a profile of Don McLeroy, the avowed
creationist who chairs the state board of education, in the Austin
American-Statesman. Meanwhile, a legislator in Oklahoma, outraged by the
prospect of Richard Dawkins visiting the University of Oklahoma, introduced
two antievolution resolutions -- and Dawkins responded.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A new antievolution bill in Florida. It's the seventh so far in 2009,
joining bills in Alabama, Iowa, Missouri, Mississippi (already dead), New
Mexico, and Oklahoma (already dead). Meanwhile, faculty in Iowa decry the
antievolution bill in their state. And a fresh crop of scientific and
educational journals celebrating the Darwin anniversaries.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The thousandth signatory to NCSE's Project Steve arrived -- just in time
for the Darwin anniversary celebrations! Plus NCSE is making a sample
chapter from the second edition of Eugenie C. Scott's acclaimed Evolution
vs. Creationism available. And a journal is calling for papers for a
special issue on the teaching of evolution in a university setting.
