Alaska Restores the E-word
While Kansas, and some other states, are moving to weaken science education, our friends in the frozen tundra of Alaska apparently have moved to strengthen it there. In an early draft of the science standards, the word "evolution" was deleted, despite complaints from teachers. The latest draft restores the E-word. The newly restored standards still need to be reviewed by the law department and signed by Lt. Gov. Loren Leman.
