"Academic freedom in science, for researchers and for students as well, stands out as a problem that is important yet strangely neglected. Think about it: On campuses, asking tough questions about a scientific subject is discouraged, sometimes punished. When it comes to evolution, intellectual intimidation is rife. This is something that people across the political spectrum should find disturbing. Yet from otherwise very impassioned and articulate commentators, the silence on the subject is remarkable. Truly, it’s a scandal."
Please contact your state Representative and Senator and urge them to sponsor a resolution which would encourage academic freedom for university students.
You can do this in two steps. First go to www.openstates.org to enter your address and discover who your state Representative and Senator are. Then click on the name of each and you will be directed to a page with his/her email address. Click on that email address to create an email.
In your email, include the link below to the NEW model legislative resolution.
