On this episode of ID the Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin is joined by Dr. Steve Fuller, a professor of sociology at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom. Dr. Fuller shares his perspective on the recent forced resignation of the former Director of Education at the Royal Society, Michael Reiss. Reiss is an ordained Anglican Priest, has a doctorate in biology, is currently a professor of science education at the Institute of Education at the University of London, and is widely regarded and respected as an expert in science education. Reiss stepped down from his position as Director of Education due to the controversy over his recently expressed opinions on creationism in the classroom. Listen as Dr. Fuller shares his belief that Reiss was forced to step down merely because he refused to say that creationism was false.
