"Evolution Education: What A Difference A Dozen Years Makes!"

NCSE's deputy director Glenn Branch described the results of the recent NCSE/Penn State national survey of public high school biology teachers in a special report appearing in the September/October issue of Skeptical Inquirer. "Clear and convincing gains for evolution education were so produced in just twelve years," Branch concluded. "What good news will a further dozen years of effort bring?"

The results of the NCSE/Penn State survey are described in detail in Eric Plutzer, Glenn Branch, and Ann Reid's "Teaching evolution in U.S. public schools: A continuing challenge," published in Evolution: Education and Outreach, expounded further by Branch on the BMC On Society blog and the National Science Teaching Association blog, and discussed by Reid on the ASCB blog and in a Nature commentary.
