I’m pressed for time, so please excuse me for just doing a quick news dump here. I’m taking care of both Florida Citizens for Science and personal stuff before jumping into the car Monday for the trip to Tallahassee.
Orlando Sentinel: 4 extra words in Florida science proposal rankle educators and an editorial that says It’s silly even to debate whether evolution should be taught in schools.
Miami Herald: Carl Hiaasen writes Our reputation for flakiness is at stake.
Tallahassee Democrat: Raise the bar: approve new standards, evolution and all.
The News-Press: Florida science lessons evolve.
Bradenton Herald: State should OK new standards.
I plan on issuing a couple of press releases first thing Monday morning. One will give a full, official FCS statement on the adding of “scientific theory” throughout the standards, and the other will give information on a press conference FCS will host after the Board of Education makes its decision.
I will then drive up to Tallahassee and commence live-blogging. Stay tuned …
