Challenges to the teaching of evolution continue in our state's
schools (see "The Roseville Story" below). Recent
attempts to have "intelligent design" and creationism
taught alongside the theory of evolution, while not, perhaps,
widespread, are nonetheless sources of much consternation
for parents and science teachers who want their students to
have the benefit of a solid, academically sound science education.
CSTA has developed this resource packet for teachers and districts
who find themselves confronted by attempts to introduce into
science classrooms non-scientific ideas about the origins
The National Academy of Sciences' latest publication on evolution,
Science, Evolution, and Creationism, can be downloaded
for free. http://www.nap.edu/sec.
A printed copy can also be ordered from that site.
