Although evolution is firmly established as one of the most important, integrative, and robust concepts in science, the teaching of evolutionary science and related subjects has been challenged in school districts across the United States. Recognizing the harm these challenges pose to science education and, ultimately, to the foundation on which scientific advancement is based, 17 scientific societies, representing the physical, chemical, biological, and social sciences and science teachers communities, established an unprecedented coalition to explore opportunities for collective understanding and action.
As part of this effort, this Coalition of Scientific Societies conducted a national survey to examine attitudes toward science and scientists, views on evolutionary science in the context of education, and means through which the scientific community can effectively bolster support for teaching evolution and related subjects. The findings from this survey are reported in the following article:
