IDAHO: Newton DOA

Print Article

Regarding Marc Stewart’s article on the Idaho House vote to exclude Newton’s Laws of Motion and climate change effects on our planet, I politely call for the BS alarm. Reps: Amador, Mendive and Cheatham have done a disservice to our teachers and our children. It did make The New York Times though, not that it was a good thing.

Not having read what they were voting on, I cannot say why they voted the way they did, but I do know this: Idaho is the only state to not approve such new science standards. That’s sad. Hats off to LCHS teacher Jamie Esler for speaking out. Hopefully the Senate Ed. committee votes to include the new science standards. You guys lost my vote.
