The National Science Teachers Association issued a statement condemning Bush's recent remarks in support of teaching "intelligent design" in science classrooms (via The Loom):
The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), the world's largest organization of science educators, is stunned and disappointed that President Bush is endorsing the teaching of intelligent design - effectively opening the door for nonscientific ideas to be taught in the nation's K-12 science classrooms.I'm thinking we should just get rid of science altogether in the classroom. It's all so uncertain and theoretical.
"We stand with the nation's leading scientific organizations and scientists, including Dr. John Marburger, the president's top science advisor, in stating that intelligent design is not science. Intelligent design has no place in the science classroom," said Gerry Wheeler, NSTA Executive Director.
