Preparing students to teach evolution
I just sent an email off to some faculty in the Faculty of Education, asking if they'd meet with me and a colleague to discuss how we are preparing (mostly failing to prepare) our students to teach evolutionary biology. These future teachers will be in the front ranks, defending evolutionary science against the 'war on biology' being waged by the Christian and Muslim fundamentalists. We can't complain about how they do this job if we haven't done our best to prepare them for it.
