The economic future of this state and nation depends upon the intellectual development of our young citizens. We must continue to teach science in an appropriate manner to these children. The ‘dumbing down’ of the curriculum puts our state at risk. By removing science from these students it will be more difficult to instill a love of science in later years. What elected representative would even consider such a modification? Is there another agenda at work? Is this the first step in moving from a fact-based society to a faith-based society? Without the critical thinking skills of the scientific methods our future generations will be led by emotion, superstition and prejudice. The Texas legislature, keeping the “Dumb” in dumb-ocracy.
