Science Classes Redesigned to Teach Evolution

Researchers calculate that about 530,000 fewer public school students are learning about intelligent design in 9th or 10th grade biology classes today, compared to 2007. The amount of class time science teachers spend on human evolution has also doubled in those 12 years, according to scholars at Penn State University and the National Center for Science Education. The changes come from a new generation of teachers, new textbooks, and updated education standards.

2007 – 8%

2019 – 5%

Science teachers who discuss intelligent design:

2007 – 23%
