NCSE Analysis of Ohio Standards

Science Excellence for All Ohioans, listed on their web site as a project of the American Family Association of Ohio, has posted on its web site a list of changes it would like to see incorporated into the new Ohio Science Standards. The purpose of the changes is to bring intelligent design into the science curriculum as a “viable alternative explanation for both the origin and diversity of life”.

NCSE analyzed the proposed changes and provided explanations on each point why the current standards should remain as they have been proposed, and intelligent design not be included in the curriculum.

We have provided the document in both html and PDF formats.
