Submission + - Tennessee 'monkey bill' becomes law (nature.com)

gbrumfiel writes: "A Tennessee education bill designed to "teach the controversy" surrounding scientifically established issues such as evolution and climate change became law automatically yesterday, after Governor William Haslam declined to sign it. The law is "a permission slip for teachers to bring creationism, climate-change denial and other non-science into science classrooms,” says Eugenie Scott, director of the National Center for Science Education. The National Association of Biology Teachers has also denounced the new law, along with 4,400 Tennessee residents. Scott worries that other states may soon follow."
