Stop Putting 'Science' in 'Science Education'!

U.S. students lag behind those of many other countries in science and engineering proficiency, so naturally the American education system is compensating by denying established modern science. Professional educators have developed and agreed on standards of science education, but the fundamentalist Tea Party parents running school boards denounce them as anti-Christian Big Gummint brainwashing of innocent American kids.

Creationists Finds Cave Painting of Dinosaur
