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.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

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.

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.

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."

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The effort to repeal Louisiana's antievolution law is back. A
creationist teacher in Ohio receives a further legal defeat. NCSE
announces the 2012 recipients of its Friend of Darwin award. And a
court ruling protects a climate scientist undergoing what he called a
"witch hunt."

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A publisher's second thoughts about a forthcoming cryptocreationist
book. A step forward for the credit-for-creationism scheme in Alabama.
A new poll of public opinion regarding climate change. Plus a new
issue of Reports of the NCSE and a new batch of videos on NCSE's
YouTube channel.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/02/24

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The end of the road for C. F. v. Corbett. A second bill in Oklahoma
attacks evolution and climate change. Documents reveal a conservative
think tank's plans to undermine the teaching of global warming in
public schools -- and the source of the leak steps forward. The two
antievolution bills in New Hampshire are editorially denounced, and
the impetus behind the credit-for-creationism scheme in Alabama is
divulged.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/02/17

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Both antievolution bills in New Hampshire have been dismissed by the
House Education Committee. A new bill in Alabama would be a "vehicle"
for creationism, says its sponsor -- but a leading constitutional
scholar regards it as unconstitutional. Plus the creationist bill in
Indiana is apparently shelved, and a new poll investigates the
opinions of British Christians on teaching creationism in the science
classroom.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Speculations and recommendations about the creationist bill in
Indiana; the (partial) return of evolution to Science and Engineering
Indicators; and the advent of Darwin Day and Evolution Weekend.
