I got a call today from a friend in Texas who until recently was a high school science and math teacher. She had just read an article in Texas Monthly about the State Board of Education, its lopsided composition and “intelligent design” advocate chairman, and was hopping mad about it. I asked her if she was a member of the two Texas organizations working for good science or the National Center for Science Education. She said she was ready to sign up. So while I’m collecting the information for her, I’ll also post it here so that any others interested can also get involved.
Texas has a rough year ahead of it, and thus science education nationally has a problem. Especially if you are in Texas, this is the time to get involved. The last time Texas was dealing with science education issues, those three organizations helped people find effective ways to make a difference. They are already dealing with the issues. They could use your help.
