Not everyone is happy with the draft of curriculum standards submitted by Texas science teachers yesterday. Jonathan Saenz of the Free Market Foundation is not buying the crazy idea these teachers are pushing — that state science standards should focus on, you know, science and not a bunch of phony “weaknesses” of evolution. Saenz tells the Dallas Morning News it is
“outrageous that these educrats have expelled the truth from state standards that have been in place for over 20 years.”
Psst… Jonathan, the recommendation came from classroom science teachers. If there are any “educrats” in Austin trying to muck with science standards, it’s your creationist buddies on the State Board of Education.
(And by the way, shouldn’t you be in Alaska with the rest of the Free Market staff trying to block the investigation of Sarah Palin? I guess someone has to stay behind to sue school districts.)
