This week on the Intelligent Design The Future podcast CSC program officer for public policy and legal affairs, Casey Luskin, outlines Discovery Institute’s science education policy.

As a matter of public policy, Discovery Institute opposes any effort require the teaching of intelligent design by school districts or state boards of education. Attempts to mandate teaching about intelligent design only politicize the theory and will hinder fair and open discussion of the merits of the theory among scholars and within the scientific community.

Listen in as Luskin explains why Discovery favors this approach to science education policy.
