I guess today’s theme is “that creationist charter school in Texas.” Anyway, here’s an interesting tidbit from that article:
Responsive Ed’s butchering of evolution isn’t the only part of its science curriculum that deserves an F; it also misinforms students about vaccines and mauls the scientific method.
The only study linking vaccines to autism was exposed as a fraud and has been retracted, and the relationship has been studied exhaustively and found to be nonexistent. But a Responsive Ed workbook teaches, “We do not know for sure whether vaccines increase a child’s chance of getting autism, but we can conclude that more research needs to be done.”
As I’ve noted before, while there’s enough goddamn idiocy to go around, anti-vaccination sentiment has a right-wing bias, the stereotype of the Whole Foods Liberal notwithstanding.
