Text of a letter to the Dover PA school board

Letter--Biology Curriculum

I feel compelled to write to let you know that I find it appalling that you are deliberately lying to your students when your primary responsibility is to educate them. The sentence "Gaps in the theory exist for which there is no evidence" is patently false. If you purport to teach science, then your responsibility is to teach science as it is, not as certain people wish it to be. That is why you have Academic Standards in the first place.
