Words, science, and the state of evolution

Abstract

A nationwide attack on science teaching was discussed. The evolution was central to modern biology. If the current language about evolution remained in the final Ohio standards, the wedge strategy may succeed a year ahead of schedule. The seductiveness of the wedge strategy was that it seemed to be based on an appeal to fairness, which resonated particularly well in the United States.
