Why are students from other nation’s ranking higher in science than Americans? Why does the national business community wish to see far more attention to STEM in our public schools?
When the truly absurd mish-mash from evangelicals can trump logic, reason, and in many cases facts, we wind up with policies of this type, with students not qualified to enter many places of higher education. To be scientifically wrong, and to be treated as if one is correct, is allowing the tail to wag the dog.
The Ohio House on Wednesday passed the ‘Student Religious Liberties Act.’ Under the law, students can’t be penalized if their work is scientifically wrong as long as the reasoning is because of their religious beliefs.
Every Republican in the House supported the bill. It now moves to the Republican-controlled Senate.
Republicans have again demonstrated what end of the evolution process they call home. Simply, wow.
What is truly frightening is how the anti-science march has been taken up by so many conservatives. How under-educated must a person be to view science as ‘liberal’? From evolution, global warming, vaccines, there is an open attack on science and those who undertake the studies about it. How is it that science is now scorned, and spreading ignorance is becoming acceptable?
