Controversial issues on TV

The local Fox affiliate did a story on the controversial issues workshop I’m part of here in Florida. You can see me talking to the teachers about a minute into the video above.

Alas, the reporter got the story a bit wrong. Teachers were never forbidden from saying the word “evolution,” the standards themselves simply avoided the e-word. The teachers know that, but the reporter missed the point.

More on the conference in a couple days.

    I would have like them to interview you directly. Oh well.. maybe next time.

    If students have more questions they should go to their parents?!

    Way to undermine everything you just taught and put the final say in the hands of the scientifically illiterate Florida.
