Storms: Go ahead and teach creation



From our sister blog, The Gradebook: State Sen. Ronda Storms, a Brandon Republican, has filed what she calls the "Academic Freedom Act" (SB 2692) with a stated goal of "providing public school teachers with a right to present scientific information relevant to the full range of views on biological and chemical origins."... Her bill would would ban penalizing teachers for teaching alternatives, and disallow action against students for taking a position on evolution. There's no related House bill filed yet.
