Weaponizing disinformation in the schools. Glenn Branch writes here about four states that introduced bills to prohibit teachers from “indoctrinating” their students: Arizona, Maine, South Dakota, and Virginia.'This is a solution in search of a problem!' Any state that passes a law requiring teachers to present “both sides” would be compelling them to teach in defiance of the state’s science standards.Despite efforts to pretend otherwise, the real targets here are evolution and climate change.Among scientists, these are not controversial issues. Unnecessary, intrusive, and overreachin, but the way in which they threatened to undermine the integrity of science education may have been their worst feature. It was a good thing for them to be put to sleep.'
