ALABAMA ACADEMY OF SCIENCE
The Executive Committee of the Alabama Academy of Science hereby
records its opposition to legislation to introduce "scientific
creationism" into the Alabama classroom. Furthermore, the Executive
Committee of the Alabama Academy of Science believes that the
introduction of classroom subject content through the political
process not only violates academic freedom of the subject specialist
to determine relevant and scientifically sound concepts, but also
represents an inappropriate and potentially dangerous precedent
for American education.
