I am proud to announce that organizations are now coming forward in support of the new draft of the state science standards.
The first is a complete surprise. Our very first county school board has approved a resolution in support of the standards. Thank you, Monroe County!
The members of the framing and writing committees who created these great science standards sent their own letter to the Board of Education defending the inclusion of evolution.
The American Institute of Biological Sciences released a letter in support of the science standards.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State also released a letter in support of the standards.
The Florida Academy of Sciences presented a supporting resolution at Monday’s public forum meeting in Orlando. I called their office today to confirm they had a resolution, and I was told they would send me a copy tomorrow. I’ll post it as soon as I can. [edited to add: the resolution is now available.]
