Kansas, Arizona, Tennessee, Iowa...any other crazy-ass states I'm overlooking that are doing stuff like this?

"The law protects teachers from discipline for teaching scientific subjects in an objective manner or helping students understand, analyze, critique and review in an objective manner the scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses of existing scientific theories."

No, that's not what it does. What it does is prevent a teacher from being called out for teaching creationism or offering up Biblical myths as alternatives to scientific theory.

For example, if a teacher found a website claiming that gravity is NOT the result of two masses attracting each other, but rather it's because God loves his people to stay on Earth, and then taught that as an "alternative theory" to the conventional theory of gravity, he/she could not be disciplined for doing so.

And this is happening as the United States' ability to compete in an increasingly scientific world is increasingly at risk. Ignorance begets ignorance.

By November they'll be wanting to abolish public schools altogether in favor of private ones that can teach all kinds of ignorance. Oh and only richies will be able to afford it.
 
+Brent Hovde The richies, as you call them, will be able to afford the good schools that teach actual science. They'll stay rich by running the schools for the poorer kids where they'll hire anybody willing to proselytize in the science classroom for $18K a year.
 
Haha good point! There will be the elite schools with all of the funding to research about dinosaurs in the garden of eden and the crumbs will go out to everyone else.
 
Kansas never seceded from the Union during the Civil War.
