The AIBS Public Policy Office monitors, analyzes, and reports local, state, and federal public policy developments (e.g., legislation, school board initiatives, and lawsuits) that threaten educators' ability to teach science and students' ability to gain an understanding of science, particularly evolution.
In addition to reporting on threats to science education in the Public Policy Report, the AIBS Public Policy Office also maintains a "State News on Teaching Evolution" archive featuring state-by-state coverage of evolution education developments. Quarterly, we release a fact sheet summarizing recent developments in different states.
Scientists and educators interested in current evolution and science education related developments in their home state may also wish to join the AIBS/NCSE State Evolution List Serve Network. For more information or to join a state evolution list-serve, please visit:
