Don’t Mix Science, Religion in Public Schools

“These bills are akin to legalized extortion: Any individual muckraker can object to instructional materials and have their protest treated as a show-stopper. Currently, Florida parents unhappy with instructional materials are entitled to complain to their local school board, whose decision is final.”

Two points on this article:

  1. The title- It’s not honest. What the title should say, based on the content and point of the article is, “Don’t Add Religion Into School Science”. That would be honest.
  2. This exposes the errancy of centralized government. Especially with education. Here, a state organization is trying to dictate what the curriculum should be and how it should be presented. At least it is not a national or federal organization. Why not leave it up to the locals? Have the school district decide, as representatives of the local citizens, what the curriculum should be and then we can limit others’ opinions being forced onto our children’s education.
