I’ve heard plenty of stories about Christian schools kicking out students. I’ve heard about them kicking out students who were openly gay. I’ve heard about them kicking out students whose parents were gay. But what happened to Sunnie Kahle was news even to me.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the project — more videos will be posted soon — and we’d also appreciate your suggestions as to which questions we ought to tackle next!
It’s not enough for private Christian schools to teach Creationism in the classroom; many states are now supporting voucher programs that use taxpayer funds to help students attend these schools. We’ve posted about the problem before, and now Politico has issued a “special report” on the issue:
Why is This Vaccine-Denying Actress a Featured Speaker at the National Science Teachers Association’s Conference?
Last year, at a conference for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, The Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik was a speaker. It made sense, I suppose: She’s on a show about nerds and she’s a “Brand Ambassador” for Texas Instruments. Hard to get more math-y than that.
It turns out Bialik is also a featured speaker at the annual convention for the National Science Teachers Association taking place in just over a week. Again, makes sense on paper, given the show she’s on and how she has a Ph.D. in neuroscience.
