The Emphasis Given to Evolution in State Science Standards: A Lever for Change in Evolution Education?
Skoog, Gerald; Bilica, Kimberly
Science Education, v86 n4 p445-62 Jul 2002
Analyzes the science frameworks of 49 states and the District of Columbia to determine the emphasis given to evolution in these documents at the middle and secondary levels. Collectively, the 50 frameworks emphasized evolution in a manner that suggests that if the public's support for standards-based curricula is a reality, the study of evolution will be emphasized in an unprecedented manner in the nation's schools in the near future.
