The National Center for Science Education flagged over a dozen bills this year as threats to the integrity of science education, more than the organization typically sees in an entire year. Several of them — including proposals in Oklahoma, North Dakota and South Dakota — had language which says teachers should not be prohibited from addressing strengths and weaknesses of concepts such as evolution and global warming.
