(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/01/13

Dear Friends of NCSE,

NCSE files a friend-of-the-court brief in the Freshwater case. Two
antievolution bills in Missouri: one that would encourage teachers to
emphasize "the scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses" of
evolution and one that would require equal time for "intelligent
design" in the state's schools and universities. Protestant pastors in
the United States reject evolution, according to a survey conducted by
the research arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. Over a third of
K-12 educators who teach about climate change have been influenced to
teach "both sides," according to a NESTA survey. And a reminder about
NCSE's Grand Canyon expedition in 2012.
