On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses the two major problems of U.S. science education: first, that students are not adequately taught critical thinking skills; and second, that insufficient numbers of students are inspired to pursue careers in science. Tune in as Casey explains how allowing teachers to address both the scientific evidence for and against Darwinian evolution in the classroom would advance science education and improve the scientific competency of our students.
