After creationism bill failed, Indiana senator will push ‘truth in education’ measure

Sen. Dennis Kruse, who tried and failed in the last legislative session to let schools teach creationism along with evolution, said Tuesday he’s trying a new approach: Requiring teachers to provide evidence if students challenge their science lessons.

Kruse, an Auburn Republican who is chairman of the Senate Education and Career Development Committee, said he will dub it “truth in education.”

“If a student thinks something isn’t true, then they can question the teacher and the teacher would have to come up with some kind of research to support that what they are teaching is true or not true.”

I hope this guy is increasing education funding. Proving the Higgs Boson exists takes a whole bunch of money.

And I guess that will be the end of abstinence only education as well, right?
