"Senator, please stop calling out the wrong answer."
Teachers don’t get enough respect for putting up with petulant, idiotic politicians all day. In this committee hearing for Senate Bill 374, which would have repealed an act that allows creationism to be taught alongside evolution in Louisiana schools, state senator Mike Walsworth showed the depth of scientific understanding that underscores why only actual scientists should design science curricula. As a science teacher patiently explained a well-regarded experiment, Walsworth basically responded with “I think it's sick that you want our children to build humans out of E. coli." Shockingly, the bill was rejected.
