Parents and teachers on Monday rallied outside an Arizona Board of Education meeting, and then took turns during the meeting blasting a proposal to remove references to evolution and climate change from state science standards.
A separate proposal from Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas to replace all the education standards for K-12 district and charter schools with a set developed by a private college in Michigan with ties to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos drew another round of outrage.
Before the meeting, protesters with the Secular Coalition of Arizona held up signs with phrases such as “Teach science not fairy tales” and “Science made America great, make America great again.”
