We would love your feedback this week on the new website!
Give us your ideas on how the website can best grow the secular movement, advocate for science in schools and the public debate, and make a real difference.
Winner and Winning Response: Stephen of Wimbledon
“Supporting science in schools needs to become a more positive political force. The NCSE (National Center for Science Education) has done a great job of defending science over the years but its approach tends to suffer from a weakness:
It can look defensive and, right or wrong, defensive actions tend to be viewed as negative because it looks like we’re handing the initiative to the attackers: We win in Dover, then we wait in the trenches for the next attack which comes in the new tactic of ‘academic freedom’.
What the RDFRS could be doing is getting some of our troops out of the trenches and pushing forwards.“
To all who commented on our new website: thank you for your input.
