Science HELP!!! Please!!! :-(
I'm ashamed a lot for this:
I ask to you to sign this appeal.
New school programme detrimental to scientific culture
The new teaching programs developed for secondary schools
do not include Darwin's "Theory of Evolution".
This means that subjects such as "The Evolution of the Earth",
"The Evidence of Life on Earth" "Structure, Function and Evolution
of Living Organisms" and "The Biological and Cultural Evolution
of Mankind" aren't taught any more to boys and girls aged 13-14.
In the new programme, established by legislative decree on February 19th
there is no trace of the history of man's evolution
nor of the relationship between mankind and other species.
Ignoring the theory of evolution is a cultural limitation sacrificing
the scientific curiosity of youth.
It's unquestionably fair to point out that Darwinism and the theories
that derived from it show gaps and unsolved problems,
but the link between the past and the present of mankind
shoudn't be completely ignored.
We urge therefore the Italian Ministry of Education to review
the secondary school's programmes and to rectify an oversight
which is detrimental to the scientific culture of the new generations.
See all the signatures
Thanks you very, very, very much!!!
