Defending Evolution in the Classroom is a necessity for anyone concerned with evolution education. The late Ernst Mayr wrote, "This book should be in the hands of every educator dealing with the subject of evolution," and Eugenie C. Scott, executive director of NCSE, agreed: "At last a book for teachers to help them cope with antievolutionism. Clearly written and filled with practical advice about the underlying religious and scientific issues prompting student questions, Defending Evolution should be on every teacher's bookshelf." A member of NCSE's board of directors who testified in Kitzmiller, Brian J. Alters directs the Evolution Education Research Centre at McGill University.
