Louisiana passes "anti-evlution academic freedom bill"

Louisiana Senate approves bill on science teaching

Associated Press - June 16, 2008 4:24 PM ET

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Senate has given final legislative approval to a proposal that would let science teachers change how they teach topics like evolution, cloning and global warming in public schools.

The bill by Senator Ben Nevers would let teachers supplement school science textbooks with other materials.

Senators voted 36-0 Monday to send the measure to Governor Bobby Jindal.

Supporters say the bill is designed to promote critical thinking, strengthen education and help teachers who are confused about what's acceptable for science classes. Opponents say the proposal is a veiled attempt to add religion to science classes and to challenge well-established science teachings.
