Barbara Forrest profiled in Church and State

Barbara ForrestBarbara Forrest

Barbara Forrest was profiled in the January 2010 issue of Church and State, published by Americans United for Separation of Church and State. "For Barbara Forrest, fighting for church-state separation and quality science education in Louisiana — and the rest of the nation — has become her civic duty," the article explains, citing both her testimony in Kitzmiller v. Dover and her efforts to mitigate the impact of the so-called Louisiana Science Education Act, which threatens to open the door to creationism in the science classrooms of the state's public schools. A professor of philosophy at Southeastern Louisiana University, Forrest is the coauthor (with Paul R. Gross) of Creationism's Trojan Horse (rev. ed., Oxford University Press 2007), and a member of NCSE's board of directors.
