On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses the Next Generations Science Standards (NGSS) and the attempt to promote pro-Darwin science standards will diminish local control over what students learn. In Star Trek, the scientifically advanced race of Vulcans lives by the motto ‘infinite diversity and infinite combinations’. Their formula for scientific diversity makes sense as science advances by challenging old ideas and encouraging people to test new ones. Right now public school education seems intent on adopting the opposite philosophy.
