Bill to overhaul teaching in Louisiana passes

Yesterday the bill in Louisiana passed in the Senate.

…the Senate voted 36-0 without debate to go along with the same version of the proposal that the House passed last week 94-3.

The measure, Senate Bill 733, now goes to Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is expected to sign it.

It would allow science teachers to use supplemental materials, in addition to state-issued textbooks, on issues like evolution, global warming and human cloning.

What supplemental materials might these be?

Also, if you’d like to email the governor of Louisiana to tell him what you think, see this link:
