Ohio: Fordham Science Curriculum Evaluator Angry

From the The Columbus Dispatch: Ohio board member Michael Cochran used the "B" the Thomas B. Fordham Institute gave Ohio during a board meeting on Jan. 10 to justify approving the lesson.

"When evidently somebody on that board said our B grade shows that we thought the lesson is OK, that really (upset me). This is a very bad lesson," said Paul Gross, who wrote the Fordham Institute report.

"The whole thing is dishonest. The whole thing is a Trojan horse."

... Washington University biologist Ursula Goodenough said she and the four other members of the Fordham Institute committee supported Gross’ evaluation.

RSR is curious, when people in Ohio buy a dozen eggs, do they shop for Grade B eggs?
