Evolution teaching under attack in Texas
The teaching of evolution is under attack in Texas yet again.
Many members 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.
