Oklahoma Anti-Science Science Teaching Bill Dead

The National Center for Science Education is celebrating the death of Senate Bill 758 which

would have undermined the integrity of science education in the Sooner State.

There remains a bill in the Oklahoma House (HB 1674):

styled the Scientific Education and Academic Freedom Act, which differs from SB 758 primarily in mentioning “biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming, and human cloning” as supposedly controversial topics.

Bills that target the teaching of evolution show up like dandelions in the spring.
