Celebrating the Tenth Anniversary of Academic Freedom in Louisiana Public Schools

On this episode of ID the Future, Sarah Chaffee interviews Dr. Wade Warren, zoologist and holder of the C.J. Cavanaugh Endowed Chair in Biology at Louisiana College, on the ten year anniversary of the passage of the Louisiana Science Education Act. This act gave teachers freedom to teach both the scientific strengths and weaknesses of evolution — not including intelligent design or religion — without fear of reprisal. Dr. Warren recalls the reasons he advocated for its passage, and discusses pluses and minuses with the more recent Louisiana state science standards — including some scientists’ strange “discomfort” with some facts, even though they don’t disagree with them.
