"The bill will require state and local education authorities to "assist teachers to find effective ways to present the science curriculum as it addresses scientific controversies," according to a copy of the bill.
Controversial issues listed in that bill include biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming and human cloning."
so it requires teachers to teach controversies that more or less haven't existed since a few years after the origin of species was published 150 years ago. wonderful.
i'm starting to wonder if garth's crazy commie conspiracies aren't actually true. clearly this is a covert attempt to bring down america by ensuring that its younger generations don't understand science.
What's kind of sad too is that U.S. student score averages are being buffed by foreign students, which tend to excel in History, Math and the Sciences.
'Wake-up call': U.S. students trail global leaders
Out of 34 countries assessed, U.S. ranked 14th in reading, 17th in science, 25th in math
But at least they have Brawndo.

And IMO, we need to stop forcing a general education and allow people to specialize early. I really don't care if the guy who makes the rocket that brings us to the moon is a horrible public speaker, or doesn't know who Plato is, as long as he knows ****ing everything about what is needed to put a rocket on the moon.
