Online trainings for science education advocates and activists

Taking Action icon, by Paula Spence for NCSE, 2012 NCSE conducts monthly webinars (interactive online trainings), and archives those trainings for later viewing. These trainings will cover a range of topics, from media skills, lobbying, and advocacy using social media, to skills for building a local or statewide group of "citizens for science" and for recruiting new members and moving them into leadership positions.

Tell the Texas board of ed.: Don't mess with textbooks!

The Texas state board of education is preparing to adopt textbooks, and anti-science ideologues want to hijack the process. Creationists and climate change deniers appointed as reviewers by extremists on the board have flooded publishers with demands for corrections of supposed factual errors — corrections that would make the books less accurate. The board of education needs to hear from you at their meeting on Tuesday, September 17.

Next Generation Science Standards for Kentucky

The Kentucky state board of education adopted Next Generation Science Standards this June, preparing the Bluegrass State to replace standards which earned a D in 2012 with a new set of model national standards. Unfortunately, these strong new standards are under attack. The state legislature must approve the new standards, and ideological opponents of evolution and climate education are gearing up. A key vote is expected to come next Wednesday, September 11.
