AAAS Writes Louisiana's Speaker of the House, Reiterating Opposition to Anti-Science Education Efforts

As Louisiana policy-makers prepared to debate Senate Bill 733, the so-called "Louisiana Science Education Act," AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner, executive publisher of the journal Science, sent a letter directly to Speaker of the House Jim Tucker (R-Algiers) and other state representatives decrying the latest effort to insert religious, unscientific views into science classrooms. "Louisiana students need a firm understanding of evolution and other essential concepts to compete for high-skill jobs in an increasingly high-tech world economy," Leshner noted.
