(H/T to PZ Myers)
Coming from one of the many countries that do have National Science Standards, I could never understand why America has not adopted this concept years ago.
Greg Laden says we should all vote on this idea: that we ought to rather thoroughly revamp how science is taught in this country by setting national science standards on the teaching of evolution. I think with some hard work it could be done. Of course, there would be a lot of resistance from the ID/Creationist faction,but who cares? Go and vote on this.
