The signature heard ’round the world…by those who care, anyway

The governor of Louisiana has signed SB 733, the “academic freedom” bill that many are worried will let religious ideas creep into science classrooms.

You can read an article about it here.

All I can say at the moment is that I hope Louisiana science educators use this as a way to get truly excellent scientific material into the classroom. NOVA’s “Judgment Day”, or the series online from PBS called “Evolution”, perhaps. By the way, you can look at those here.
