Fucking with science education in New Mexico

Seems some don’t want the age of the earth, evolution and climate change taught to primary and secondary students!

Changes to the curriculum use the language of the New Generation Curriculum but not the curriculum itself.

Guess rightwing nutjobs can’t deal with educated people.

Well well, a huge outcry has seen the New Mexico education authorities restore evolution, age of the earth and global warming to the K-12 curriculum! I guess NM isn’t the deep south!

I just don’t understand what the authorities thought they were doing in the first place? Some fossil fuel lobbyist or Heartland Institute slime wanting to fuck with education?
