Why is it so hard to teach evolution and climate change? In particular, why is it so difficult to teach these theoretically and practically important topics in the public schools of the United States? Certainly the problem isn't at the scientific end, where the scientific consensus is overwhelming. In his talk, NCSE's Glenn Branch will review the causes and effects of the difficulties, highlighting NCSE's ongoing efforts to support the integrity of science education around the country.

The keynote address for the 2018 membership meeting of the Coalition for Excellence in Science and Math Education; the event is free and open to the public.
