The teaching of evolution is under attack in Texas yet again.
of the Board of Education are attempting to compromise the state’s science
education standards by watering down treatment of evolution, and opening a
door to creationism in science classes. Because it is a large market for
textbooks, Texas has a disproportionate effect on their content, and
decisions made in Texas affect textbooks in other states as well. See http://ncseweb.org/news/2009/01/victory-over-weaknesses-texas-004236 for more information and how you can help.
