On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze and Casey Luskin discuss the 2012 Fordham Report, which has declared the latest science education standards in Texas to be “exemplary.” These standards, which have been decried by the NCSE as “creationist jargon,” require students to analyze and evaluate both the strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian evolution. Although the Fordham Report is typically favorable towards science standards that are dogmatically pro-Darwin, its approval of the recent Texas science standards aligns with the Discovery Institute’s support of a more thorough study of Darwinian evolution.
