Podcast #31 – Eugenie Scott

We talk to Dr. Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) about the recent action by the Texas Board of Education [www.tea.state.tx.us/sboe] that places three creationists on the six-member committee that reviews science standards [link].  How damaging could this move be to the rest of the country?

For more about NCSE visit NCSEweb.org – consider becoming a member, since the NCSE operates part on membership dues.

Also visit the Texas Freedom Network at TFN.org, one of the major pro-science groups within the state.
