Science makes comeback in schools
NEW ORLEANS -- Science, long a scourge in classrooms across America, is making a comeback in schools, according to Educator Weekly.
"We didn't see this coming," said Sandra Ohm, president of the National Education Association. "After that school board in Texas voted to abolish the theory of relativity, evolution, batteries, and all theories of biology based on the germ, we thought science teachers were through. Absolutely through. That was in 2014. But who knew then that science could bounce back like this?"
President Hillary Rodham Clinton congratulated her newly appointed Secretary of Education Bill Nye a.k.a. "The Science Guy" on helping rehabilitate science's image among parents and educators with segments like, "Way Cool Scientist," "Consider the Following," and "Nifty Home Experiment."
Nye said the "Luna Van Dyke: Private Detective" and "Jackie Smazz Show" were "particularly persuasive to Republican State legislators."
"I knew he could communicate with children, but I had no idea he'd be this effective with adults!" Clinton told reporters at a press conference.
Forbes says sales of dolls modelled on Marie Curie and Aprille Ericsson-Jackson are on track to surpass Bratz and Barbies by Christmas of 2017.
