Should public schools censor scientific evidence just because it challenges DarwinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s theory of evolution? Or, should teachers present ALL the scientific evidence, including both the strengths and weaknesses of evolutionary theory?
The overwhelming majority of Americans believe that when biology teachers present the scientific evidence supporting DarwinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s theory of evolution, they should also teach the scientific evidence against it.
According to the Kansas State Board of Education: “Regarding the scientific theory of biological evolution, the curriculum standards call for students to learn about the best evidence for modern evolutionary theory, but also to learn about areas where scientists are raising scientific criticisms of the theory.”
However, there are some in Kansas, and around the country, now using their voices to try to undermine KansasÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ science standards and stifle discussion of the scientific evidence they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like.
If you agree that children should be fully informed about evolution, join with like-minded citizens and stand up in support of the Kansas state science standards.
