NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/04/13

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The "monkey bill" in Tennessee is enacted, although without the
governor's signature. Plenty of boos for the new law ensued.
Previously there were continued calls from the state's newspapers and
a petition signed by thousands of concerned Tennesseans urging a veto
of the bill. Plus the Steveometer passes 1200, and scientific and
educational organizations are voicing their opposition to the latest
antiscience legislative effort in Oklahoma.

Calls from civil liberties groups for a veto of the "monkey bill" in
Tennessee. A new attack on science education in Oklahoma. A survey on
the perceived importance of science education. The Los Angeles Times's
view of Tennessee's antiscience legislation. The death of a second
antiscience bill in Oklahoma. Views from across Tennessee on the
state's antiscience legislation. And congratulations to Lawrence
Krauss.

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Opposition to Oklahoma's antiscience bill from the AAAS, the NABT, and
the NAGT. Tennessee's "monkey bill" passes the legislature, despite
Eugenie C. Scott's advice, Roger D. Cone, Robert G. Webster, and Jon
Kaas's opposition, and the precedent of seventy-five Nobel laureates
calling for the repeal of a similar bill in Louisiana. Plus a preview
of Richard Milner's Charles R. Knight.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Tennessee's "monkey bill" passes the state senate. Plus a new resource
on energy education. Opposition to Tennessee's "monkey bill" from the
Nashville Tennessean, the National Association of Biology Teachers,
the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and the National Earth
Science Teachers Association, the American Institute of Biological
Sciences, and ten Tennessee members of the National Academies. And
antievolution bills fail in New Hampshire but continue in Oklahoma.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/03/16

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The "monkey bill" returns in Tennessee. F. Sherwood Rowland is dead.
One of the two bills in Oklahoma attacking the teaching of evolution
and of climate change is no longer a threat. The Wall Street Journal
discusses the obstacles to climate change education. And NCSE unveils
"Voices for climate change education."
