A Missouri legislator, apparently upset about neighboring Kansas acting more backward than the “Show Me State,” has introduced a bill that would transform high school science:

Education in science will be opt-out in Missouri, if a bill requiring schools to notify parents if “the theory of evolution by natural selection” is being taught at their child’s school passes.

The bill proposed by Republican State Rep. Rick Brattin had its first public hearing Thursday. Brattin has described teaching only evolution in school as “indoctrination” to local TV.

I guess “Show Me” doesn’t mean “show me a first world education.”
