← Classroom Clashes: Teaching evolution

Neodarwinian's Avatar Jump to comment 5 by Neodarwinian

“Teaching biology without evolution is like teaching American history without the Civil War,” says Jeremy Mohn of Overland Park, Kansas, who’s taught high school biology for 12 years."

Massive understatement!!

Without the Revolutionary War, War of 1812. The Spanish-American War, WW I. WWII, Korea, Vietnam and so on. A lot of American history around the Civil War and on both sides of it, but, mentioned or not, the theory of evolution by natural selection and the fact it greatly explains is much more to biology than the Civil War is to American history.
