No Dinosaurs in Heaven: new documentary on teaching evolution (or not)

By John Published: September 22, 2011

A new documentary on creationist attempts to undermine the teaching of evolution in science classes includes a raft tour of the Grand Canyon led by Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education.

The documentary (see trailer here) is a response to a national survey of high school biology teachers I referred to in February ( here and here ), which estimated that only  "28 percent of those teachers consistently and 'unabashedly' introduce evidence that evolution has happened, and build lesson plans with evolution as a unifying theme linking different topics in biology."
