At the request of the Louisiana Federation of Teachers, the Louisiana State Board of Education will allow public comment on Louisiana’s tuition voucher program. Zack is going to appear before the Board to urge reforms to Louisiana’s creationist school voucher program.
Zack is going to urge the removal of 20 schools he identified that are teaching creationism in the program. We posted about that a few months ago — see Stop Governor Jindal’s Creationist Voucher Program.
Zack’s testimony will be today, Thursday, October 25, 2012 AT 2:00 PM (Central Time, one hour later than on the East Coast), at the Louisiana Department of Education, Claiborne Building, Louisiana Purchase Room. You can watch the meeting online, here at this link.
Alas, things being what they are in Louisiana, we fear that Zack’s work will be unavailing. Nevertheless we wish him well. As we always do when advising witnesses who attend such things, we repeat the Curmudgeon’s Dictum which is universally applicable when debating creationists: Don’t bring a slide rule to a knife fight!
