Standing Up By Sitting Out
Inside Higer Ed has a commentary on the battle over science in Kansas:
Evolution and science are under attack again in Kansas, and academics there and around the country are refusing to participate in state Board of Education hearings designed to debate the concepts.
The head of the American Association for the Advancement of Science became the latest to beg off, saying in a letter to the board Monday that “rather than contribute to science education, [the hearings] will most likely serve to confuse the public about the nature of the scientific enterprise.”
