Don't Let Creationism Sneak Into Texas Science Clasrooms

Anti-evolution publisher Foundation for Thought and Ethics (FTE) is waging war on science education in Texas, the Texas Freedom Network is reporting.

FTE is best-known for their 'intelligent design' science textbook Of Pandas And People, which a federal judge ruled in 2005 could not be taught in public schools because it violated the Constitution.

Now, the same publisher has announced plans to submit creationist science curriculum material to the Texas State Board of Education later this year.

“Teaching inaccurate information rejected by the scientific community would be a huge disservice to Texas kids and a major setback for science education everywhere,” said Kathy Miller, president of the Texas Freedom Network.

It's up to advocates, scientists, students and members to tell the board that Pandas - or anything like it - is unacceptable when it comes to teaching science in Texas. 

Tell the Texas board of education to pick science materials from reputable publishers only.
