Some of you may be interested in this message from Glenn Branch with the National Center for Science Education:
I thought that you might like to know that The Revisionaries, the documentary about the battles over evolution education at the Texas state board of education, will be playing at the Violet Crown Cinema, 434 W. 2nd St. in Austin, from October 27 to November 1. Show times are at 12:10 p.m., 2:10 p.m., 6:20 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. (except for October 27, when the last show will be at 8:35 p.m. instead).
A description of the film: "Once in a decade, the 15 members of the Texas State Board of Education meet in Austin to revise the textbook standards for five million schoolchildren. Led by Don McLeroy, a Young-Earth Creationist and Evangelical Christian, the panel implements standards that will ultimately go into effect in science and history textbooks for schoolchildren across the nation. The Revisionaries is a galvanizing peek behind the curtain at the politicization of education."
