Science homework might be a little easier for Oklahoma students in the
near future, depending on how you look at it. House Bill 1674 by Rep.
Gus Blackwell, R-Laverne, would allow students to turn in schoolwork
that challenges “controversial topics” such as “biological evolution,
the chemical origins of life, global warming and human cloning” without
adverse consequences, such as a pesky bad grade. It also will force
teachers to come up with more creative ways of handling such subjects.
