Submission + - Tennessee "Teaching the Controversy" Bill Passed Into Law ( 1

MrKevvy writes: The Tennessee "Teaching the Controversy" bill was passed into law today.

"A law to allow public school teachers to challenge the scientific consensus on issues like climate change and evolution will soon take effect in Tennessee.
State governor Bill Haslam allowed the bill — passed by the state House and Senate — to become law without signing it, saying he did not believe the legislation "changes the scientific standards that are taught in our schools."
