Science education or alchemy?

The Louisiana Science Education Act is one of the latest fundamentalist attacks on science in the modern world. It allows teachers to use supplemental materials that directly oppose the best scientific knowledge and methods available. This act is child abuse. It's not OK to teach kids lies. It's almost treasonous to use public funds and public schools to do so. If parents want their kids to be superstitious and ignorant, they can take them to a fundamentalist church. The rest of us need our kids to be educated.
Let's hope that Senator Peterson succeeds in her third attempt to trash this piece of crap. Louisiana already has David Vitter to be ashamed of.
